Blogging Marathon# 66: Week 1/ Day 1
Theme: 3 Veggies that are Fruit
Dish: Creamy Cucumber Gazpacho

Can’t believe it’s July already and half the year passed off so quickly. We are starting a new edition of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is dishes made with ‘Veggies that are fruit‘.Technically speaking fruit is a part of the plant that develops from a flower. It is also the section of the plant that has seeds. Other parts of the plant are considered vegetables — like stems, leaves or roots. Good example of  ‘veggies that are fruit’ are cucumber, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, squash and so on. But from a culinary point of view, vegetables are more savory and fruits are sweet.So first up I used cucumber in this very summery soup. Gazpacho is a soup made with raw vegetables and served cold. This recipe is slightly spicy with the addition of scallions and garlic and creamy with the sour cream. For a vegan version, skip the sour cream and add the avocado right into the blender for a creamier version.Recipe from Epicurious:
