Week 30: Gazpacho

A bowl of gazpacho, a cold tomato and vegetable soup.
This light and savory soup is usually made from fresh blended tomatoes and other summer vegetables. It is not cooked but is served chilled with savory toppings, such as herbs, hard boiled eggs, ham or more chopped veggies. Gazpacho originated in Spain and Portugal and is perfect as a hot summer meal.

A bowl of gazpacho, a cold tomato and vegetable soup.With fresh veggies beginning to come in, this cold summer soup is wonderful. The kids loved it; called it salad in a soup bowl! Serve with grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch or as a first course for a nice dinner.


Soup: Garnish:


Place the tomatoes in the blender and blend a few seconds at high speed. Add the green pepper, cucumber and onion slices a few at a time, and blend a few seconds after each addition.

Add the tomato paste and bread crumbs and blend until the mixture is thoroughly combined.

Place in a bowl, cover and chill in the refrigerator.

Combine the cumin and garlic in a small bowl. Stir in the mayonnaise and vinegar. Add the broth and mayonnaise mixture to the pureed vegetables.

IF desired, force through a sieve, pressing down on the residue to extract all the juice. I like the texture the residue gives to the soup.

Season the soup with salt and pepper and refrigerate for two to three hours.


Place each of the garnish ingredients in individual serving bowls. Before serving, stir the soup thoroughly and place in individual soup bowls. Pass the garnish ingredients separately

Here in south Florida, the colder and fresher our
meals are, the better we like them. This sounds
like my kind of food and we'll eat it 3 days a week
if I make it.

Thanks for a really good recipe. I think I'm going
to like the touch of cumin too.
