“Gazpacho’s a light, cool, refreshing soup from Spain. The Spanish call gazpacho, “Salad.” This uncooked vegetable soup is usually made form a pureed blend of fresh tomatoes, sweet peppers, onions, cucumbers, garlic, olive oil, vinegar and bread crumbs or soaked crumbled bread. There are so many ways to make it. It’s said that if you had thirty Spanish cooks in the kitchen, there would be thirty different versions of gazpacho! We are adding a quick step of sauteing the garlic in olive oil first before adding to the blender of veggies. This really enhances the fresh garlic flavor. We’re serving ours with a medley of chopped vegetables for garnish. You might be wondering why our gazpacho’s a blush color instead of a vivid red? This is due to using yellow sweet peppers which softens the color. What a delicious and super simple way to get all your veggies in one fell swoop!”
