Gazpacho is the perfect no cook soup. This
I’ve tried a couple different gazpacho recipes, but this particular one is my VERY favorite. Warning: this recipe has some spicy zip to it!
- 5 Large tomatoes, quartered
- 1/2 cucumber peeled, and seeded
- 1/2 red bell pepper
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1tbs. coarse salt
- 1tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup olive oil
Blend all the ingredients in a blender until finely pureed. You may have to do it in two batches depending on the size of your blender.
Tip: You can use the leftover 1/2 of your red bell pepper to give the soup some crunch, by dicing it up. It also works as a nice garnish.
You could easily use this gazpacho recipe as a side dish, and make a complete meal out of it. That’s what I did above, alongside some salmon. But, if you’re in a”fancy”mood, you could serve gazpacho as a first course at a more elaborate dinner! It would be very sophisticated, and would take you virtually no time at all to make! Either way it is deelish. Best of all- it tastes even better the next day, so be sure to make leftovers!
