Spinach Gazpacho

A fresh green gazpacho is the perfect starter for a spring gathering. This is so easy to make, as it only requires chopping and blending. The spinach is paired with other green veg like cucumber, creamy avocado and celery.

Substitute:

  • No spinach? Use kale, spring greens, lettuce or mixed leaves. 
  • No basil? Use parsley or coriander instead. 
  • No cucumber? Try with a courgette. 
  • No lemon? Swap for lime instead.
