Cookbook Club Gazpacho Recipe

Fresh picked veggies make gazpacho taste like a million bucks!Yesterday we discussed a great curried stew to use up all those veggies ripening in our gardens.

Today we use some of the same vegetables to make a cold dish…. GAZPACHO! Gazpacho is a wonderful cold soup that is wonderful by itself, with a salad or as the opening course to a summer dinner.

Use whatever veggies are coming your way to make a dish that evolves as you, and your garden do!

Gazpacho is often served with side dishes of various toppings, such as diced tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and croûtons.

I have found gazpacho recipes where they add navy beans, garbanzo beans,or even sliced black olives to the final chunky “puree”… experiment to make my recipe YOURS!

    Thank you so much, this was very interesting. I was actually born in Madrid ( not telling what year though!) but moved around europe and lastly settled in the UK when I was a teenager. I dont remember an awful lot of the few years I was in spain, but the smell of spanish food always seems to get me going or something. Funny, how I dont remember anything except the smells,isn’t it! I actually found a whole internet site dedicated to spanish recipes, which gave me great delight and thought I ought to share. Anyway, thank you again. I’ll get my husband to add your website to my rss thing…
