Why Artichoke Gazpacho

Cristy was craving a light, cool and healthy meal with the crazy summer heat. She loves the idea of eating chilled soups and thought artichoke would be an excellent main ingredient for a gazpacho without the typical tomato base. Loaded with vegetables, this recipe is not only lectin-free, but vegan, savory and very filling!

What you Need

The vegetables first bake in the oven, but then you’ll transfer them to a blender to make the gazpacho. Since the soup is served chilled, you don’t need a blender that heats liquid. You can blend the tender-baked veggies and broth with an immersion blender in a pot or a simple stand blender.
