Everyone loves Spanish food!
Gazpacho is the signature summer soup for those hot beach days.
When it is hot and you just want to make a quick and easy recipe for your family, Gazpacho is the answer to your thoughts. I love making it almost every day and I just leave it in the fridge to drink through out the day. My kids have grown up with it, they love it more and more and I constantly hear myself being asked: ‘Mama, puedes hacer Gazpacho para comer?’ (Obviously they speak Spanish 😉 )
There are many recipes to make a good Gazpacho; the following is my favorite because it is easy and light!
For 1 liter of Gazpacho mix the following ingredients and mash it with the mixer:
- 1Kgr. of chopped ripe tomatoes (ideally Spanish 🙂 origin or Italian)
- 200gr. of chopped cucumber
- 150gr. of chopped green pepper
- 1 chopped onion
- 4 chopped garlic cloves
- 100gr. of chopped bread
- Olive oil to taste
- Salt to taste
You mash all of the above ingredients, add salt and vinegar to your taste and olive oil to reach the consistency you like. It is supposed to be like a soup, quite liquid.
Keep it in the fridge until served.
On the side, as a topping you have various choice such as chopped tomatoes, cucumber, onion and bread. Add these toppings to your Gazpacho when served and a bit of mint for colour.
