Here is a spicy, chilled soup with vibrant color and over-the-top flavor. It just doesn?t get any fresher tasting than this. I love serving this soup in small glasses as a prelude to a casual summer meal or simply as an afternoon pick-me-up. It really sparks the appetite.

Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Cucumber Gazpacho

2 English cucumbers, peeled and chopped (4 cups chopped)
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, deribbed, and chopped
3 green onions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch lengths
2 jalapeno peppers
1/2 c Italian parsley, large stems removed
1/2 c spearmint or lemon verbena leaves
2 cloves garlic
1/2 c water
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp tabasco
1 teaspoon fine sea salt

Recipe Directions for Spicy Cucumber Gazpacho

  1. Put the cucumber, bell pepper, green onions, jalapeno chiles, parsley, spearmint or lemon verbena, and garlic into a blender and liquefy.

  2. Add the stock, olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, Tabasco, and salt. Pulse to combine.

  3. Taste and adjust the balance of salt and lemon juice if needed.

  4. Adjust the thickness of the soup by adding a little more chicken stock if needed.
