You can serve this beautiful green dish straight from the blender as a hot soup or chill it in the refrigerator and serve it as a refreshing gazpacho.

You only need a blender to make this gazpacho. Easy to clean up. No mess in the kitchen. Just how I like it. The main ingredients are cucumber, avocado, fresh herbs and our daughter’s favorites: green peas.

A starchy vegetable, peas are a good source of energy, fiber, protein and essential vitamins. Green peas are loaded with vitamins A, B-1, B-6, C, and a super sized serving of vitamin K, a fat-soluble vitamin that plays important role in blood clotting and building strong bones. One more reason to include them in our daily diets.
