What is Gazpacho?
Ok, I will straight up you tell you this is my first time making and eating gazpacho. Can you believe it? I guess I was still in the mindset that soup has to be HOT not cold. Even when I told my husband that I was going to give this gazpacho soup recipe a try, he gave me that “deer in the headlights look”. See he is in that mindset too.
Gazpacho is a cold soup that originated in Spain. For some strange reason, I thought it came from Italy. You can learn something new in the food world every day. It contains a mixture of uncooked veggies, seasonings, and spices. You can also add nuts, breadcrumbs, yogurt or sour cream to make it creamy.
Some cookbooks classify gazpacho as a salad. That might take a bit more convincing for me. I would classify it as a want-to-be smoothie, LOL. In fact, that is how I explained it to my daughter (who thinks soup should be hot). I said it was like eating a chunky smoothie.
Whatever class you want to put gazpacho in, I have finally found out it tastes DELICIOUS! I mean how can you not love it, especially this easy gazpacho recipe? Throw everything in a blender and call it dinner. I have even convinced my husband that in fact soup can be eaten cold, he LOVED it! Now I have to work on my daughter.
