Share it:

Also known as Malagan Gazpacho, this no-cook "salad in a bowl" is ideal for hot weather. Healthy, colorful, refreshing perfection.

"At 6 pm tonight, it was 108 degrees here, and believe me, there was NOTHING on this earth I wanted to cook my family for dinner. I just whipped up a batch of this soup in 20 minutes, no cooking, and it is delicious! It is chilling a bit more now, because I think tonight my family is going to want dinner "extra cold"! Thanks for the great recipe. We've got a nice loaf of chewy bread to go with this, and some cold beer. Can't wait to sit down and cool off! "

Servings  

Preparation

If bread is a bit stale, soak in some water for a bit to soften, then squeeze dry; tear softened bread into large pieces. Mix all ingredients together well, using hands or a large rubber spatula. In two batches, puree the mix in blender, adding approximately 1 c. of the water to each batch. Chill thoroughly, and serve VERY COLD!!

Traditional garnishes include finely chopped cucumber, onion, bell peppers, garlic croutons, and chopped hard-boiled egg. Serve as condiments alongside the gazpacho; a large dollop of sour cream or creme fraiche atop each bowl of soup is also nice.

Notes

This delectable Spanish soup freezes beautifully, so make several batches in tomato season and freeze for consumption on cold, tomato-less winter days.

Outstanding! So great for a hot summer day. I added black & white pepper to bring on the flavor and it was refreshingly good!

I am not a huge gazpacho fan but my hubby loves it and has been begging me to make it. I have to say this is the best gazpacho I have ever made. I would strongly recommend that you use sherry vinegar over white wine though as that makes the soup so much more flavorful. I make become a gazpacho convert after making this! will def make again!

Gotta have gazpacho on a hot day in the summer theres nothing like it. This was great and easy to make. I added cilantro and a chopped jalapeno to add some spice. This disappeared pretty quick at my house.

This gazpacho is the best I've ever made. I did reduce and sub the onion (spring instead of Spanish), used strained tomatoes instead of water, and added chopped cilantro. It was spectacular. Great summer food.

My sister who is a gazpacho addict liked this. I doubled the garlic in it which is a family trait, so suit yourself (still not particularly noticeable).
