Gazpacho Soup (Cold Spanish Soup)

by Erica Dinho on May 20, 2009

GazpachoThis colorful soup is very easy to make and would make a great first course for a summer party. There are many variations, but this is a traditional Gazpacho.



(4- 6 Servings)

  • 3 cups very ripe tomatoes
  • 1 ½ cups cucumber peeled and diced
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • ½ cup green pepper, seeded and diced
  • ½ cup red pepper, seeded and diced
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt or more if you like
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons red pepper, seeded and finely chopped (for garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons cucumber, finely chopped (for garnish)


  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until you have a smooth mixture.
  2. Adjust seasoning and transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until very cold, at least 3 hours.
  3. To serve, divide the gazpacho in bowls or cups and garnish with cucumber and red pepper.

I love gazpacho! Your recipe is very similar to mine, but instead of a garnish of veggies, I like to use fresh garlicky croutons. I can’t wait until the tomatoes are in season so I can make some!

I like gazpacho a lot. I have a great recipe that I use each summer. I think I will add this recipe to the collection too. Gazpacho is easy to prepare, low in calories and is so healthy too.
