Perfect Gazpacho With All The Trimmings

Cuisine: Spanish
Servings: 6-8 servings
A Perfect Summer Soup

What better way to get into summer than with a yummy, cold gazpacho! You cannot get a healthier meal than this. Served with chopped sides of red peppers, cucumber and egg, it's the perfect light lunch.

I know that there are tons of gazpacho recipes out there but this one is totally my favorite: it is based on authentic Andalusian gazpacho.

One thing that definitely helps is using a really good olive oil; this absolutely makes a difference to the finished product.

There are so many ways to make this gazpacho into your own unique recipe. I always add extra cucumber in mine and a ton of lime. Play around with the recipe until you find your own perfect gazpacho; in the meantime, enjoy this version.



  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor. Blast on the highest setting until smooth.
  2. Serve with sides of diced cucumber, egg and red peppersbased on real Andalusian gazpacho.

Chef Notes

If you prefer a creamier gazpacho, soak a piece of bread in water and squeeze until all water is out, then place it in with the other ingredients during the blending process .
