Gazpacho Recipe : Summer In A Bowl

Heat related illnesses and basic tips are key to staying cool in hot climatesGazpacho is a cold soup served in on a summer evening. Famously funny for Northern Europeans who rarely eat soup cold, and a topic of many early tourist dinner disasters in the early 70’s. These days food has become international, and Gazpacho prepared from Kiruna in Northern Sweden to Queenstown, New Zealand.

Gazpacho – A Recipe For Success For All Tastes

The best thing with Gazpacho: ‘Everyone’ can eat it! Gazpacho works for vegetarians and vegans. It is also great for those that prefer gluten-free, no dairy, low-calorie and healthier foods in general. You boost your magnesium, and anti-oxidant levels and oh! It simply tastes great too 🙂 

Gazpacho is one of those recipes that works for starter, main or even dessert (if you are adventurous!). You can mix it endlessly into menus, because of it raw cold qualities. You choose if you want to go entirely Latin, or serve it as part of a BBQ. Choice, individual taste and enjoyment of food is the key!

Watermelon Gazpacho

There must be 1000 ways you can vary Gazpacho. I like mine made simply. This recipe has watermelon, tomatoes, cucumber, oil and spices. For crunch, I top each cold soup bowl with warm roasted nuts. You can try what works best for you. Toppings are to be experimented with, and much fun. For a party you can put out small bowls with nuts, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, feta, parmesan, whole-wheat bread cut small and extra chilli for the hotter taste buds. Your guests can choose what they want, and the party is off to a great start.
