Ingredients
 
 

For the soup

  • 4 cups avocado
  • 2 cups roughly chopped, seeded tomato
  • cups roughly chopped yellow onion
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped arlic
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • teaspoons salt
  • about 1 cup water

For the mix-ins

Instructions
 

For the soup:

  • Add all of the ingredients, except for the water, into the blender or a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Blend until the mixture is very smooth.
  • Add the water, 1/4 cup at a time, to the desired consistency. (If you're having any difficulty getting a smooth texture in the previous step, you can add the bit by bit with the other ingredients.)

For the mix-ins:

  • Combine the avocado, tomato and onion and mix-in all but about 1/4 cup to the soup. When you serve the soup, add the remaining mix-ins to the top of each bowl for a garnish. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil on top and sprinkle with a bit of coarse sea salt.

Notes

I love the tangy punch of flavor the vinegar give this gazpacho. If you prefer less of a "bite" you should use a bit less. Likewise, I love the kick from the raw garlic and onion -- here too, feel free to adjust the amount to suit your taste.
