I don’t usually think of soup when I think of my ideal summer meal, but gazpacho is the one very important exception. If you haven’t had a good gazpacho yet, GET READY FOR THIS!

The first time I ever had real gazpacho, I was in Sevilla, Spain, visiting a friend who was studying abroad. Most days I would explore the city while she was in class, but I decided to join her for just one class… cooking.

Guess what we made that day? Gazpacho! I was shocked at how few ingredients it took to make such a delicious gazpacho, and how much better it tasted than any gazpacho I had tried in the U.S. Gotta love real ingredients!

That experience definitely turned me into a gazpacho fan, especially because I discovered that it was so easy to make. If you haven’t had gazpacho before, it’s a cold soup made from tomatoes and other blended vegetables. It’s a Spanish staple for good reason!

It really is that simple – tomatoes, some other vegetables, spices, olive oil… and blend it all up! This is a great soup to whip up if you’re short on time or just want something simple, and it’s perfect if you want a liquid meal on a hot summer day!

This is definitely not your average boring tomato soup. It will turn you into a soup lover! This cool, refreshing soup with light summer flavors is the perfect addition to anyone’s meal rotation. You can serve it as a main or a side! It’s paleo, vegan, vegetarian, packed with veggies, easy to make, and a dish everyone will love!
