Cucumber-Basil Gazpacho

If you followed along on Instagram, I recently visited Miraval Austin Resort with one of my best friends from college. We had so much fun catching up, spending quality time together, living the spa life all while enjoying health-focused foods and activities. It was a dream, complete with this Cucumber-Basil Gazpacho.

During our visit, the chef’s made us a delicious gazpacho that I just devoured. Upon arriving back home, it was the first thing on my to-do list to attempt to recreate in my own kitchen.

I absolutely love the way this Cucumber-Basil Gazpacho turned out. It’s got a bright and refreshing note from the cucumber, wonderful aromatics thanks to the scallion and basil, a touch of heat from the cayenne and garlic, and a creaminess thanks to the avocado. A total summer-time win!

    We’re team soup year ‘round in our house but it’s just entirely too hot to cook so this recipe was the perfect solution! I love the coolness of the cucumber, heat of the cayenne & creaminess of the avocado- just a perfectly balanced Summer gazpacho!

    This is my favorite cucumber recipe. I have made it several times both this summer and last! It’s so cool and refreshing, and zesty!

    1. Sorry to hear that! Usually that amount of cayenne is fine for sensitive palates, but you can definitely omit if you give this another try.
