Try this vegan cucumber gazpacho for a quick summer dinner!

And of course, the garlicky croutons take it to the next level.
Ingredients For Vegan Cucumber Gazpacho
Shallots and garlic. They bring a deep flavor when roasted.
Fresh herbs - mint and parsley.
Yogurt of choice. Either plant yogurt (such as coconut or soy), or plain greek yogurt.
Plant milk to blend. We like almond or so milk here. Oat and rice milk have a sweet undertone and we don't think that's a good fit.
Lime or lemon.
Apple cider vinegar.
Jalapeño pepper. Optional, but it does bring some heat, which we love.
Hemp seeds. Optional. They give a boost of nutrients and a bit more creaminess.
Salt and black pepper.
How to Make This Recipe
Start by roasting shallots and garlic in olive oil for 20 minutes. Then add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. If needed, taste and adjust the flavor- more mint for freshness, more lime/lemon juice for tanginess, or more almond milk for a thinner gazpacho.
We recommend you chill it in a refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving, because the flavor gets more intense I think it's better served cold.
If you want to save some time, you can skip the roasting of the vegetables, but again, we think the flavor is deeper and better with this additional step. And if you do skip this, definitely add fewer garlic cloves than required, as raw garlic has a stronger flavor.
Can you freeze Gazpacho?
You bet! Gazpacho is ideal for freezing, as it lasts for up to 6 months (and sometimes longer!). Freeze it in a jar or a container of choice. To defrost, simply take it out of the freeze and into the fridge the night before.

Servings: 3 people
For the gazpacho
- 1 avocado ripe
- 2 medium cucumbers chopped
- 2 shallots chopped
- 5-6 garlic cloves peeled
- 1 medium jalapeño pepper (optional)
- 2 cups plant milk of choice (we like almond and soy)
- Juice of 1 lime or lemon
- 2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- Big handful of mint
- Big handful of parsley
- 2 tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)
- 3 tablespoon coconut yogurt (or sub with greek yogurt)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1-2 tablespoon olive oil
For the croutons (optional)
- 3 slices of bread, preferably day-old bread (use gluten-free if needed)
- 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and halved
For serving (optional)
- Hemp seeds
- Yogurt of choice
- Sliced Radishes
- Preheat oven to 180C (356F). Lay baking paper on a baking sheet. Add shallot and garlic cloves and toss in olive oil and salt. Next place slices of bread. Roast for 10-20 minutes. It really depends on how old your bread is, so don't forget to give it a look now and then. Fresh bread takes longer to bake.
- When the bread is nice and golden and the shallot and garlic caramelized, take them out of the oven. Carefully, while the bread is still warm, rub a whole, peeled garlic clove on each slice until it melts.
- Cut the garlic bread into cubes. Set aside.
- In a blender or a food processor, add all of the ingredients for the gazpacho and blend until smooth. Then taste and adjust the flavor if needed- more almond milk for thinness, jalapeño for spice, vinegar and lime juice for a more tangy flavor, mint for freshness.
- Transfer into a jar a covered container and refrigerate for at least 60 minutes before serving.
- When chilled, serve the gazpacho with garlicky croutons and toppings of choice. We love to serve it with hemp seeds, radishes, yogurt, and more mint!

This is an absolute go-to for the summer heat. The moment i took the first spoon it felt like the temperature dropped by 20 degrees.
It's was so simple that i got it right the first time (and im the type that needs to read an ikea manual twice)
Personaly, i dropped the mint. I prefer mint on sweets only.
10/10 its pretty dang cool!
