Gazpacho Recipe, it is easy and nutritious! Anyone can blend together fresh veggies and herbs to make an amazing cold soup! Yes, cold soup! Gazpacho is a refreshing cold soup packed with vitamins from fresh veggies! This is a low-carb soup that makes an awesome meal or appetizer!
Gazpacho is a wonderful soup packed with nutrition. It's refreshing and delicious! On a hot, hot summer day, after work, gardening, or taking a long walk on the beach, coming home to a healthy meal is at the top of my list! Considering the abundance of garden and farmers market veggies, this easy cold soup is top of the must make soups!
Why is Gazpacho Soup a cold soup and where did the soup originate?
Gazpacho has origins in Spain and Portugal. The soup is served cold as it is said to have been a nutritious everyday meal to replenish their bodies for local farmers after working on their farms.
Can you eat Gazpacho hot?
I personally love my Gazpacho recipe served as it originated, cold. If I want a warm soup, I would do a tomato soup( I have an Instant Pot recipe coming next week) with sauteed veggies as the base. Gazpacho incorporates veggies and herbs fresh so I prefer it served cold.
How do you serve this Easy Gazpacho Soup?
Easy Gazpacho recipe is a great cold soup to serve in soup bowls. For a special presentation, I hollow out peppers and add the chilled soup. This I do ahead of time and keep in the fridge. Sprinkle extra cucumber, tomatoes, celery on top of the cold soup. Avocado is also a great topping as it pairs well with all the garden veggie ingredients. An awesome topper, a jalapeno slice if you like a little heat. Freshly baked croutons or Parmesan Crisps are great additions too!
Can Gazpacho be frozen?
Please don't freeze. It is a cold soup is made of fresh veggies, freezing the soup will lose the texture of the fresh veggies. This soup will keep well covered in the fridge for about 3-4 days.
What can I serve with this Easy Gazpacho Soup?
Serve this refreshing cold soup with a brunch is awesome. Pairing with omelets and quiche are great. Parmesan Crisps, grilled cheese sandwich.
Should I peel the tomatoes before adding to Gazpacho Soup Recipe?
A huge question and it is more personal. I love soup and I happen to prefer a soup with more texture when eating this one, so I don't peel and no one has complained. I don't like extra work when cooking and the cold vegetable soup is delicious with unpeeled tomatoes.
This Low-Carb Gazpacho is super delicious! You may also enjoy:
I need to mention, traditional Gazpacho calls for bread as an addition. I experimented with bread and found leaving it out was best. This Gazpacho Soup is a bit thicker because peeling tomatoes or putting the veggies through a sieve is not required so the soup has texture. Besides making this gluten-free, the fresh flavors of the veggies were perfect. It also is keeping this a low-carb meal and its a perfect for those doing Keto!
