- 2 beetroot , small
- 4 plums , medium sized, peeled and diced
- 1/2 cucumber , small, peeled and diced

- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 clove garlic , optional

Transfer the beets and all other ingredients into a blender and churn them with the 3 cups water. The consistency should be slightly runny, but still holding its shape.
Chill for 3 to 4 hours.
Before serving, adjust the spices based on your preferences and garnish with some fresh veggies, spices, and seasoned yogurt (with salt and honey).
- It is important that the gazpacho is always served chilled.
