I am so excited to show you guys this easy gazpacho recipe.

I was looking for a budget Spanish recipe to continue on my adventure from cooking with recipes from around the world.

Gazpacho is a cold soup made of raw, blended veggies. There is no cooking required which makes it incredibly easy.

Ingredients for gazpacho recipe

You will need some ripe tomatoes, a green pepper, a cucumber, an onion, and a clove of garlic.

You’re also going to need some extra virgin olive oil and some vinegar.

You can either use sherry or red wine vinegar. You will also need some cumin.

Following gazpacho recipe

I started by cutting up my onion. I didn’t bother dicing anything too finely because I’m using a blender. I chopped the pepper and peeled my cucumber before chopping that as well. I took the peel off the garlic and cut it a bit.

I don’t have a blender or food processor so I used my Magic Bullet smoothie machine. I put all my vegetables in there and got to work on my tomatoes. I cut up 1 pound of tomatoes and added that to the rest of the vegetables.

I added 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar. I also added ½ a teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of black pepper and ¼ teaspoon of cumin.

Then I used my Magic Bullet to blend the ingredients.

I let the soup chill in the fridge for about an hour and then it was ready to eat. I poured some soup into a bowl and garnished it with some fresh cucumber slices. I also took a slice of sourdough bread for dipping.
