  1. Hi there- I live in Spain and this is my favorite gazpacho to make when the weather is hot. It is like a Cordoban Salmorejo, in the sense that it doesn't have water and it is thickened with bread crumbs. Also, I like my gazpacho chunky so I only puree some of the ingredients. You can puree more if you like it smoother!

    Puree the following ingredients:
    -4 lbs ripe tomatoes (peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped).
    -1/2 onion
    -1 green pepper

    Add the following ingredients to the puree-
    -3/4 cup diced cucumber
    -3/4 cup diced celery
    -1/4 cup red wine vinegar or sherry wine vinegar
    -1 cup bread crumbs
    -1 cup tomato sauce
    -2 cloves minced garlic
    -1/4 cup olive oil
    -1/2 cup chopped black olives

    Garnish with basil leaves and crumbled goat cheese.

      this sounds great. and i like mine chunkier rather than totally pureed.

      the tomato sauce....i have some homemade sauce frozen in my freezer. will that work? and since it has garlic in it, maybe i should cut down on the raw stuff?

      1. This simple recipe from Betty Crocker was surprisingly good. Best chilled overnight.

        1. I've used this gazpacho recipe for the past couple of years - love it! I modify a bit, though - I include a bunch of chopped cilantro and I switch out the green peppers for roasted red peppers. It's great to freeze, too.

          1. This is the first thing I am going to make when I have too many tomatoes and cucumbers in the garden.

            3/4C. lemon juice
            4 med tomatoes chopped / diced
            3 small bell peppers chopped / diced ( I use red, orange, & yellow )
            1 english cucumber diced
            1 med red onion chopped / diced
            1/2 C. chopped parsley
            2 cloves garlic minced
            10 shakes of the bottle red wine vinegar
            2 C. beef broth
            1 T. salt
            1/2 tsp. black pepper
            1/2 - 1 tsp cayene
            1 tsp sweet paprika
            3/4 olive oil

            Mix all ing. in a large bowl, chill for several hours before serving.

            I like to serve a steak or ribs with this meal, and crusty bread.

            1. I am a fan of chilled gazpacho shots... you can also dust the rim with chilli powder and add a bit of coriander on top too. Great to pass around if you are having guests over.
