Easy Does It: Gazpacho
This chilled soup, of Spanish provenance, keeps your kitchen and you cool (no oven or burner to turn on), no matter what the thermometer reads.
We offer a great list of vegetables to put into this soup, but feel free to work with what you have handy. Like most recipes, “authentic” gazpacho is a well-debated subject and can run the gamut from garnishes such as grilled shrimp and chopped eggs to some with nary a tomato invited to the party.
This version is left chunky, but feel free to puree the whole kit and caboodle (if so, no need to dice the ingredients finely — a rough chop will do just fine).
