Gazpacho

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Gazpacho is one of my favorites because  it’s great for dinner or lunch on hot summer days. This cold soup is super easy to make, but usually I’m overwhelmed by the sheer number of different recipes available online every time I start searching.

This time I decided to keep it simple and avoided the extra steps I didn’t want to do, like peeling the tomatoes or adding bread.

This easy gazpacho ended up being super light and no-one noticed the difference from the overly complex recipes out there. No tips, no tricks, just veggies in a blender. This Gazpacho recipe is for lazy cooks like me.
