What is Gazpacho?
Gazpacho is a cold soup that comes from Spain – specifically the hilly Andalusian region in southern Spain that borders Portugal.
Gazpacho traditionally has tomatoes, bread, olive oil, and vinegar – as well as other fresh herbs, vegetables, and spices that create a savory, fresh, and chilly soup.
It’s best eaten when you are looking for soup on a hot summer’s day – since it is an uncooked soup and naturally served cold!
What To Serve With Gazpacho
Gazpacho can be enjoyed as an appetizer or as a lighter main dish – we love it with Cajun Butter Shrimp, Lemon Garlic Baked Cod, Pan Seared Scallops with Garlic and Lemon, Cheesy Taco Stuffed Avocados, Air Fryer Tri Tip Steak, and Air Fryer Piri Piri Chicken!

Keep your gazpacho in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, in an airtight container.
You can also freeze your gazpacho for later use.
Thaw your frozen gazpacho in the refrigerator overnight when you are ready to eat it.
If you would like more of a pureed soup or don’t like the texture of the tomato peel, you may want to peel your tomatoes by concassing them. In order to concasse a tomato, bring a pot of water, with enough water to cover the tomatoes, to a boil. Before placing the tomatoes into the water, slice an x into the tomato. You only need to leave them in for about 1-2 minutes, and the peel will start to pull away from the tomato meat. Take out the tomatoes and run under cold water or place into a bath of ice water to stop the cooking process. Then peel the skin off (it should come off very easily).
