Summer lunch sorted: Refreshing beetroot, wasabi and coconut gazpacho

Experience a world where East meets West with this refreshing twist on a Spanish classic


This is a super easy recipe to make and is ideal if you don’t have a lot of time but want something that’s a little more exciting than a basic salad or sandwich for lunch. It’s also great for meal prep as you can keep it chilled in the fridge to save for another day. 


This gazpacho is a real fusion of flavours. The beetroot has a delicious earthy taste which is balanced by the freshness of the apple. Wasabi adds a lovely hint of spice whilst the coconut milk adds a touch of creaminess too. It’s the perfect refresher on a hot summer’s day (or night!).
