Andalusian Gazpacho combines the best flavors of summer. It is the perfect soup to eat on a hot day. Gazpacho is very healthy and the majority of calories in gazpacho come from the bread and olive oil. Although it is a very traditional dish in Spain, with modern technology, preparing gazpacho these days is extremely easy. If you like it very much, make double the recipe and freeze the gazpacho to eat in the autumn when the vegetables are not as delicious.

Recipe Ingredients for Gazpacho Andaluz

2 serving Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 slice Bread, White, Commercially Prepared
32 oz Tomatoes, Red, Ripe
4 clove Garlic
1 cucumber (8-1/4") Cucumber
1 medium raw Bell Pepper Red
2 tbsp Vinegar red wine
1 pepper Peppers, Jalapeno
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Pepper, Black
1 wedge or slice (1/8 of one 2-1/8" dia lemon) Lemons
0.25 medium raw Lime
8 oz Water

Recipe Directions for Gazpacho Andaluz

  1. Tear up the bread into large crumbles. Place the bread in a bowl with ⅔ cup cold water. Allow to soak for 20 minutes while the other ingredients are prepared.

  2. First the tomatoes need to be peeled and de-seeded. To easily peel the tomatoes, place them in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave them in the water for 30 seconds, then remove them, allow them to cool to the touch, and then remove the skin and seeds, and chop them.

  3. Peel the cucumber, cut it in half lengthwise, and then remove the seeds with a spoon. Cut the red bell pepper and green chili in half and remove the seeds from both. Then chop the cucumber, pepper, and chili into large pieces.

  4. Remove the skin from the garlic cloves and then chop into large pieces.

  5. Crush all of the vegetables in a blender. Incorporate the bread, add the olive oil, and reduce the mixture to a puree.

  6. Add the water from the bread and more cold water, as necessary, to get the desired consistency.

  7. Season with salt, pepper, red wine vinegar, and the citrus juices.

  8. Keep the gazpacho in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, and serve it very cold.
