Don’t you just love it when recipes are quick, simple, good for you, satisfying and easy on the eyes?

This 10-ingredient Carrot Gazpacho soup is all of those things and then some. I wish I could take credit for the recipe, but it’s all thanks to the very talented Jeanine Donofrio of the new Love and Lemons Cookbook (and the blog by the same name).

You guys…this cookbook is everything. And that’s coming from someone who’s fortunate enough to get her hands on a whole lot of cookbooks.

I’m a sucker for good typography (thanks to Aaron being a logo designer) and this one has some seriously gorgeous type. But beyond that, I’m smitten with the concept, which has recipes thoughtfully arranged by ingredient (apples all the way through zucchini!) and accompanying notes about seasonality. So, say you have a big bunch of carrots and you’re not sure what to make with them, you can simply flip to the carrots chapter and choose from a handful of beautiful meals.

That’s exactly how I chose this easy gazpacho with lemongrass. (note to self: use more lemongrass)

I think you’re going to love this cookbook for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that in addition to being extremely approachable, it’ll look great in your kitchen (or on your coffee table).

The biggest congrats to Jeanine and her husband, Jack, who took the photos. The Love and Lemons Cookbook is a stunner!

Ingredients

  • 1 stalk lemongrass
  • 16 ounces (450 g) peak-season carrots, peeled and sliced, about 2 bunches
  • 1 (14-ounce/414-mL) can light or full-fat coconut milk; reserve 1/4 cup for garnish
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) red curry paste
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) filtered water
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Optional garnishes: hemp seeds, pepitas, microgreens, drizzles of coconut milk

Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan Servings: 4

Prep Time: 4 hours

This easy Carrot Gazpacho is courtesy of the stunning Love & Lemons Cookbook from Jeanine Donofrio. Just a handful of simple ingredients, vegan, and gluten-free!

Instructions

  • Prepare the lemongrass by cutting off the root end and the tough upper stem of the stalk. Remove the first one or two layers of outer leaves and finely chop the tender, aromatic part of the lemongrass.
  • Using a high-speed blender, combine the lemongrass, carrots, coconut milk, garlic, olive oil, sherry vinegar, red curry paste, water, and a few generous pinches of salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. If you’re not using a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, strain the soup and blend again until completely smooth.
  • Chill for at least 4 hours. If the soup thickens in the fridge, stir in a little more cold water. Add more salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and serve with desired garnishes.

  1. I have been following Jeanine for a while now. and for some reason, as soon as this recipe popped into my feed I thought it was one of hers! So there you go – I guess a signature touch can be maintained even if others make your recipes 🙂

    Beautiful type and photography is so important! I am a (healthy) foodie and fashion model married to a techie, so your description rang true to me on multiple levels. I am starting my own blog and have been keeping an eye out for beautiful food photography so that I can also learn. It’s a long process but fun! I love looking at food pics 🙂

    Also, if you are interested, I designed this fun shirt based on a pet peeve I encountered when I started transitioning to a more plant based lifestyle. I hope you like it!

  14. Just gorgeous recipe and photo! I just stumbled across your blog and can’t wait to explore more of your content!!

    Hi! This looks great! I’m not always a fan of chilled soups, but this looks like it would also be delicious served warm. Any thoughts???

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Malorie! I haven’t tried this served warm, but I agree that it seems like it should be delicious!
