Place coarsely chopped veggies in blender or food processor and pulse until very finely chopped or puréed (I prefer it puréed). Depending on the size of your container, you may need to blend everything in a few separate batches. Pour pureed veggies into large bowl.
Thoroughly blend liquid ingredients and spices and stir into the puréed veggies.
Cover bowl and refrigerate until cold.
Meanwhile, finely dice all the remaining veggies, combine them together, and refrigerate in another covered container until until chilled.
When you are ready to serve, ladle the gazpacho into small cups or bowls and garnish with the diced veggies. You might like to add some diced avocado, a dollop of vegan sour cream, a sprig of cilantro.
I suggest including a basket of tortilla chips or a freshly sliced baguette on the side.

For a casual gathering, use several small empty, clean mason or jelly jars and spoons arranged on a table or counter. For a bit more upscale event, you can use short cocktail or stemless wine glasses. Place a large bowl of cold gazpacho in a waterproof tray filled with crushed ice. (Be sure to protect the table or surface from condensation). Provide a ladle and serving dishes filled with the chopped veggie garnish, as well as freshly diced avocado, chopped cilantro, lime wedges. So very refreshing, very vegan, & very very good!🌱
