Gazpacho

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by breezermom

The most popular version of Gazpacho is chilled, fresh tomato soup. But in Spain, many times the base is served hot, with meatballs or chicken or even grapes! Regardless of the temperature, all Spanish gaspachos do contain vegetables and garlic. Posted for ZWT.

We do love soups around here, & gazpacho is one of our favorites! Thoroughly enjoyed yours, & I know it will taste even better come summer & we will have some wonderfully home-grown tomatoes & cucumbers! The only change I made was to use a bit of lemon pepper instead of the indicated pepper! Many thanks for sharing the recipe! {Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
