Gazpacho soup 5 different ways.

 

What is gazpacho?

Gazpacho is a tomato-based, cold Spanish soup. There’s usually no cooking required when you’re making gazpacho, which makes a heaping bowl of gazpacho a perfect recipe for summer. Think of it as soup-meets-salsa.

What I love best about gazpacho is its ease. For a chunky soup, just chop your ingredients, toss together and chill until you’re ready to serve. If you like a thinner soup, gazpacho gets even simpler to make. Simply toss everything into your blender, then puree until smooth. You can also play with a mix of chopped and pureed veggies to achieve any texture in between a chunky and a smooth cold soup. You do you!

Traditional gazpacho has a base of tomatoes and adds cucumbers, bell peppers, celery and other summer veggies, but you can also put some fun spins on the classic recipe. The summer gazpacho recipes below include fruit gazpachos, like peach and white grape, so you can mix things up.

Classic Gazpacho

Summer Gazpacho Recipes

1. Classic Tomato Gazpacho

We’ll get to some twists with the rest of this list, but sometimes you just want to keep it real. This is what most people picture when you say gazpacho, and it’s a party in your mouth.

Peach Gazpacho Recipe

2. Peach Gazpacho

Fresh peaches are the star of this fruit gazpacho recipe. You can keep it chunky, as pictured, or puree the whole thing for a thinner soup. Either way, it’s a refreshing summer meal.

Gazpacho Blanco

3. Gazpacho Blanco

If the tomatoes at the market aren’t looking so hot, this is a great alternative. It has a homemade almond milk base and stars white grapes and cucumbers. There’s also plenty of raw garlic, so it’s a good meal to help you through a summer cold. (PS – If you cheat and just use 1 1/2 cups of store-bought almond milk, I’ll never tell!)

Zesty Gazpacho

4. Tropical Gazpacho

Cilantro and hot peppers give a spicy kick to an otherwise classic gazpacho recipe. The perfect summer gazpacho recipe for heat-seekers! If you want to make sure this soup is vegan, just choose a vegan Worcestershire sauce—one that does not contain anchovies. Many grocery store generic brands are accidentally vegan.

Cucumber White Grape Gazpacho

5. Cucumber and White Grape Gazpacho

Instead of tomatoes, zesty tomatillos are the base for this fruit gazpacho recipe. This flavorful summer gazpacho gets some heat from ginger juice that’s balanced out by the sweet white grapes.

Classic Gazpacho in Spain where it is original from has NO vegetable juice, celery, dill , hot pepper sauce, black pepper and no need of precisely red wine vinegar. Also the proportions are not this exactly. Bread should be present in the original recipe, but through years to make it calorie less it is disappearing from it. For sure YOUR classic Gazpacho is delicious but not any thing than a VARIATION of your own.
