One of my favorite summer thing is fresh produce. And what better way of eating fresh produce than having them when they are super flavorful and enjoy their freshness raw? An that is exactly what gazpacho is. Fresh flavorful veggies enjoyed at their best!

If only I could get my hands on more red peppers here in summer, I would probably leave on gazpacho (and loose a lot of weight!). For gazpacho all you need are fresh red peppers, ripe tomatoes and cucumbers. And all you need to do is blend them with some seasoning to get the best cold soup in the world. Try it and you will love it!

On a different note I will be leaving to South East Asia tomorrow. I will be gone until Labor Day and I will probably be kind of absent from the blogsphere in the next 2 and 1/2 weeks. I have arranged for posts to keep appearing during my absence with two fabulous guest bloggers lending me a hand. Stay tuned for posts and forgive me if I won’t be very active with comments and such for a while.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 3 Servings



  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Wash all the vegetables, clean the pepper, throw everything in the blender and blend until smooth.
  2. When you serve it you can add ice, croutons, finely diced vegetables and/or diced boiled eggs.
  3. Simple isn't it? I find you only need to know two tricks: stay low on the garlic and don't peel the cucumber, and your gazpacho is always going to be great!
