Thursday's Meal: Roasted Hatch & Avocado Gazpacho

Melissa Brown from Whole Foods Market Domain shares a refreshing recipe utilizing the in season Hatch pepper.

The recipe is as follows:


1 medium tomato, cored and cut into large chunks

2 cucumbers, striped and cut into large chunks

Flesh from 1 avocado, cut into large chunks

1/3 bunch of cilantro, the rest can be used as a garnish

1 cup or 2 roasted hatch peppers

1 cup lightly packed baby spinach leaves

1 garlic clove

1 tablespoon honey

2 ice cubes

½ tablespoon olive oil

½ teaspoon cumin

Juice from ½ lime

Salt & pepper to taste

Water (add 1 tablespoon at a time until blender gets going)

2 cups watermelon, cut into bite-sized pieces

3 tablespoons toasted hemp seeds


Combine all the ingredients (except the last two) in a blender or food processor.

Tip: If you're using a blender, put the cucumbers and tomatoes in first. This will help you're blender gain momentum much faster.

If needed, add water a tablespoon at a time until ingredients start moving. Blend until creamy or leave a little chunky if you want a gazpacho with more texture. Divide into bowls and top with fresh watermelon, toasted hemp seeds, and fresh cilantro tendrils.
