Gazpacho Recipe

Great Gazpacho

Andalucian Spanish Passion and Flavours

What could be better on a hot summer's day than a Chilled Gazpacho Recipeand some crusty Mediterranean Bread.
Ripe tomatoes and peppers with cucumber garlic and wine vinegar. The true meaning of the Mediterranean diet comes over in this cold Spanish soup from Andalucia.
And the great thing about it is, that it's so quick and easy to make. No cooking, just blending and whizzing with a stick blender... then tasting and adjusting.
For centuries now, Spanish workers have toiled in the sun from early morning until the heat of noon and then relaxed in the shade of a tree for crusty bread and good wholesome Gazpacho. Try some yourself on a hot day - there's nothing more refreshing.
