Gazpacho Soup

Keeping with our summer theme, another wonderful summer dish is Gazpacho Soup. If you have not tried this, it’s delicious and easy to make. Prepare it for lunch or dinner on a hot summer day or any time of year! It can be the initial course to a meal or a light meal in itself. There are several varieties of the soup. A smoother variety almost like salad dressing, or chunky variety not blended. Ingredients may vary depending on the original location of the particular recipes. Most are primarily tomato based, but I did explore and find a few that were fruit-based with watermelon. I will make that recipe and let you know how it tastes!

Where does Gazpacho come from?

Gazpacho soup origins are from the Andalusian area of Spain. It is mostly known now for being served cold and has many different influences from Greece and Rome, but also from the Moor’s and Arab culture. In some parts of Spain, it is served hot.

Add this delicious, healthy, and easy-to-make low-cal soup to your menu!

To healthy eating,

Melissa

Recipe Notes

Cooks Notes:

I often like to keep my Gazpacho chunky, omitting putting through the blender. If you prefer this texture, chop all the vegetable in small pieces.
