Gazpacho is a classic Spanish soup which is served chilled and it makes a delicious summer starter. Gazpacho is both impressive and unbelievably easy to make, perfect for your next tapas party.
Make this chilled summer soup after you've returned from your local market - in other words, use the freshest veg! The chickpeas make it more filling than a classic gazpacho.
This traditional Spanish soup is full of wonderfully fresh flavours and packed with vitamins as all the vegetables are raw. Cool and refreshing, it is the ideal choice for a simple lunch or midsummer supper, with some seeded country-style bread or rolls. Or serve it as a light starter on a warm evening.
What's better on a hot summer's day than a classic chilled gazpacho? Serve this gazpacho chilled in a glass or a bowl. You can also serve in shot glasses for an easy make-ahead summer canape!
This cold soup uses lots of tomatoes, which helps to protect the cardiovascular system. It needs at least one hour chilling time for best results.
This recipe produces quite a large amount, but do not worry - this gazpacho is so delicious that it will soon be gone. One of my favourites for summer parties.
