Recipe for gazpacho – Eat

– What, gazpacho here ?, I thought in horror. – No and no!

You want good, light salads in the summer and hot soups when the rain pours down. Food, weather and wind are closely linked. And there I sat, in the middle of winter in Iceland, waiting to get something warm in my body. But what did they bring?


Cold vegetable soup

I love gazpacho, but every now and then there was a mockery of common sense. Who in the world would eat cold and fresh gazpacho when the wind howls and the snow lowers?


It is outrageous for anyone with a certain food musicality that the cold vegetable soup comes from southern regions. Gazpacho is from AndalucĂ­a in southern Spain. Here, and only here under the scorching sun, one could think of making such a cold soup. And right here you will find people who sit peacefully in the shade and cool off with a fresh vegetable soup with a good hint of cucumber and tomato.

No one in this heat longs for béarnaise sauce. Or ribs.

How to make gazpacho

There are countless recipes for gazpacho. However, most people agree that the main ingredients are as follows:

  • tomato
  • cucumber
  • paprika
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • bread
  • salt
  • vinegar
  • water

Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. And you do that too. But in other words: If a reasonable mixing ratio between the ingredients ends up in a blender, it can be called gazpacho after a while.

There are almost no limits to what you can have in a gazpacho. Ham, eggs, chili, carrot, chicken … If you had taken random samples of the gazpacho soups in Spain for a year, I dare not think about how long the list of possible ingredients was.

I have made a completely straightforward and regular gazpacho which you can find the recipe for below. That said, feel good about what you think is good. And keep in mind that this is often thought of as a liquid salad that can be served before, for example, barbecue food.
