Super Summer Gazpacho

Super Summer Gazpacho

Perfect soup for a light lunch on a hot summer day or as a starter for an evening meal! It’s very refreshing and has a little “heat” from the cayenne. Good with chips or on its own. This recipe is simple to make and enjoyable to eat.

Super Summer Gazpacho


4 large ripe tomatoes, cored
1 English cucumber, peeled
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 ribs celery
1 cups plain vegetable juice
1 cups spicy vegetable juice
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon cayenne (or to taste)
⅛ teaspoon pepper


  1. Cut all vegetables into large chunks. Add one type of vegetable at a time to food processor and pulse until minced very small (approximately ⅛ inch.) Then transfer all vegetables into a container.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and stir well.
  3. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Serves six to eight. Total preparation time: 15 minutes.

This is the weirdest gazpacho recipe I have ever seen. It would offend anyone from Spain, and at least scare anyone who knows what gazpacho is. TOMATO PASTE!? Celery? Pepper? Cayenne? Vegetable juice? Call your concoction anything but gazpacho.
