Recipe: Gazpacho with garbanzo beans

Recipe: Gazpacho with garbanzo beans

Gazpacho with garbanzo beans — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

The variation on this traditional cold Spanish soup adds garbanzo beans, which more than doubles the fiber content — 4 grams fiber without, 9 grams fiber with the added garbanzo beans.


Directions

In a large bowl, add the beans, vegetable juice, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, cilantro, hot pepper sauce, garlic and lime juice. Stir well. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or until well chilled.

To serve, ladle the cold soup into chilled individual bowls and garnish with a lime wedge. Serve immediately.

  • 1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
