This is a wonderful recipe for the classic spicy chilled tomato soup. Works great as a starter or as part of a main. Very refreshing on hot days. Keeps, tightly covered, in the freezer up to 3 months.
No matter how good this soup is, it is NOT Andalusian Gazpacho. I should know, I am a Spaniard. No cumin, no beans, no celery, no basil, no oregano and no parsley. The tomatoes are real, fresh ones, not juice. And the onions should be regular, not green. Don't mean to be vindicative, just accurate... - 29 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A review from Spain. This is a recipe for a delicious vegetable cold soup, I made it yesterday. But it's not a Andalusian Gazpacho, sorry, it's just inspired. In the Gazpacho there's not: celery, navi beans, canned tomato juice (only fresh tomatoes), cumin, parsley, basil or oregano. You can add those ingredients for a very good, but all different, could soup. - 08 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
If you have leftover cucumbers and it's hot outside. Make yourself some of this cold soup. Made it the night before and when I came home from work it was ready to eat. Plus you can freeze it! Makes 10 servings. Was very good. I added some red hot to mine. - 20 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
