Gazpacho (Whole30)

Pin It
Chris and I are trying the Whole30 diet, which basically eliminates dairy, grains, sugar, legumes, processed food and alcohol from your diet for 30 days. The first few days were ROUGH for me. Like, my body ached, I had headaches, felt nauseous and really fatigued. I experienced, from what I read, something called "Carb Flu." Basically my body was going through carbohydrate withdrawal. Pretty pathetic, huh? But we both pulled through and so far have lasted almost half a month! 

I'm going to share some of the recipes that I make in case I lose my mind and decide to do this crazy diet again. Most of the recipes are actually meals we normally eat, just with a variation of ingredients. Take this gazpacho for example. Sometimes I add sugar or even bread to my gazpacho, but why? This one is probably the best gazpacho recipe I've made and it's fresh, healthy and has no additives. Win-win. Enjoy!
Printable Recipe

  • 1 tbsp. garlic, minced (less if you don't like it very garlicy)
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 large cucumber, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3 fresh basil leaves
  • Dash of salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 (29 oz.) can low-sodium tomato sauce
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until you get a slightly smooth texture with small chunks scattered throughout (or whatever texture you like your gazpacho). You might need to do this in batches depending on the size of your food processor. Transfer to an airtight container. Chill for 2 hours and serve.
