Originally, gazpacho is the meal of the peasants of Andalusia during their working day. They took away the dry bread of the day before and made a consistent soup made from bread crushed in water with oil, garlic, vinegar, and sometimes dried fruit.
The original color of white became red when the tomato became known in Andalusia in the 16th century. The name gazpacho, of Arabic origin, means soaked bread.

The traditional Andalusian gazpacho consists of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and onions. By extension, gazpacho is a cold soup of mixed raw vegetables: we can play with the flavors and colors that offer vegetables to obtain an infinite range of combinations.

Gazpacho is very easy and simple to make, the only necessary condition is to own a blender (or a mortar, like the traditional recipe). Here are some tips to  have a delicious Gazpacho :

  • Use Roma tomatoes or medium round tomatoes.
  • You can scoop out the tomatoes seeds.
  • White bread is the key to the texture of an authentic Gazpacho, helping thickens it slightly.
  • Cherry vinegar (Xérès) is standard in Gazpacho, but if you can’t find it, you can substitute it with red wine vinegar.
  • If the gazpacho is too thick, add a little water.
  • You can add the following toppings for serving: fresh herbs (basilic, parsley, chives,…), olive oil, cream, croutons, leftover ingredients, …
  • Chill at least 2 hours before serving.
