Beet Gazpacho- a refreshing and delicious cold beet soup with cucumber, avocado, and fresh dill. Vegan and Gluten free.


Units Scale
  • 3/4 lb beets ( 4 medium beets, smaller than a tennis ball, 3 inches in diameter)
  • 1/4 cup red or sweet onion, finely diced, divided
  • 12 garlic cloves ( 1 large or 2 two small)
  • 3 small turkish cucumbers, divided
  • 1/2 C fresh dill, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons sherry vinegar, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh pepper
  • Garnishes- avocado, diced cucumber, diced beet, finely diced onion, chopped dill, baby nasturtium leaves, olive oil or yogurt or sour cream


  1. Place beets in a medium pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to low and simmer until fork tender all the way through, about  60-90 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
  2. Once beets are cold, slip off their skins using your hands. Slice and place 3 of the 4 beets (saving one) in a blender with 2 cups cold water, or cold veggie stock). Add half of the chopped onion (about ⅛ cup) , 2 garlic cloves, 2 sliced Turkish cucumbers (saving one) salt, pepper, vinegar and about ⅔ of the fresh dill ( saving some for garnish). Blend until very smooth. Taste and adjust salt and vinegar. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  3. Prep the garnishes. Finely dice the remaining beet, cucumber, avocado and chop the remaining dill. Pour chilled beet soup (the colder it is, the better) into bowls. Top with the garnishes. Drizzle with a little olive oil or a swirl of yogurt or sour cream if you like. Serve immediately!
