Gazpacho with Zucchini, Garlic and Turmeric

Gazpacho with Zucchini, Garlic and Turmeric

Last Updated on

This gazpacho is creamy and silky, without any cream. Little butter or olive oil and coconut milk do this magic. Fresh or mature zucchinis can be used for making this soup. In case, you are using a mature one, don’t forget to peel the zucchini for a sweeter soup.
