It’s 30 degrees C here on the west coast of Canada, and the best place to be, quite frankly, is in the shade under the apple tree – I moved my office out there where there was a slight breeze.
The local markets are booming with fresh fruits and vegetables – this made me think – it’s time to make a cool and delicious Gazpacho soup.
It’s literally the easiest thing in the entire world to make. I think it took me 8 minutes! It’s super tasty and so packed full of goodness. It’s tango in the mouth! You can make it for lunch, as an appetizer or for dinner with a slice of homemade bread.
For 4 portions
800g of sun ripped tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
1 small shallot onion
1 celery stick
1 red pepper
1 small green chilli
80g of stale good bread
1 -2 tablespoons of good vinegar – I used balsamic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2-1 cup of filtered water
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Rinse and roughly chop the tomatoes and vegetables, put them into the blender along with the other ingredients and blend into a smooth delicious soup.
Serve the soup ice cold with freshly diced cucumber, peppers, and green onions.
The perfect summer meal – enjoy!

Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe, Anne. I will make this when we get back to Florida. Just perfect in hot weather. 🙂
This is one of those recipes that I tend to forget about when the temps start to soar. Thanks for the reminder and the recipe Anne. 🙂
The creamy color is gorgeous, Anne! I like the bread in there, too – great way to thicken!
I made gazpacho for the first time the other day myself. I went a little overboard with the hot pepper, so while it was delicious, it had a little too much kick. My friends started making bloody mary’s with it! Ha!
I made your divine gazpacho & loved every spoonful! So delicious! xxx
Gazpacho is one of my favorite summer dishes…love using my garden tomatoes for this refreshing soup.
I hope you are doing well, Anne….
I’m really missing your delicious recipes. Hope all is well with you. Happy festive season. Sylvia 🙂
