Easy Gazpacho

by Courtney on September 6, 2012

Welcome to today’s lunch.

Actually, I’ve been enjoying this deliciousness for the past couple of days…

I had it last night with dinner, too.

Along with a fantastic grilled chicken wrap, rolled up with lettuce, fresh tomatoes, and avocado.

But back to the good stuff.

Remember a few days ago when I showed you all of the lovely tomatoes that are finally popping up in the garden? Well, I’d been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with them. Sure, I’ve still been eating at least one a day, but I felt like making something special. Something different.

Enter, gazpacho.

I actually don’t think I’d ever attempted making gazpacho before, and the last time I even ate it was probably last summer on my lunch date. But let me tell you…it does not get much easier than this, my friends!

Literally, just a couple quick chops and a few pulses of the food processor, and this thing was done. So if you have some extra veggies to use up yourself, then I’d most definitely recommend giving this gazpacho recipe a shot!

If you have enough, I’d even recommend making a double batch and throwing some in the freezer to have on hand for another time when you’re in need of something quick. I’m most definitely going to make another batch with my abundance of tomaters. Winking smile

This looks great. I’ve never made gazpacho before, but I go have some tomaters coming in, in my garden also. I think I need to give it a go!

When I make a soup, it always lasts me for days and days, and a few more days… :)

I’ve never even tried gazpacho before, but this looks really good and looks like a great pair with the wrap. I’ve always been afraid of cold soup, but I think I may be coming around. This recipe is so easy to follow, too…..I need to give it a shot!

This looks SO good however, it would be a big ol’ recipe for heartburn. I love tomatoes so I wish they didn’t do that to me!!

I commend you on your wrapping ability.

I ALWAYS overfill mine…to which point it has to become a taco essentially! ;)

I tried gazpacho once about a month ago and I really liked it! Although I still love hot soup whether the weather’s cold/warm, gazpacho is a tasty treat. I bet it’d be really good with greek yogurt on top :)

I made gazpacho for the first time a few weeks back! Loved it! Though would be even better with my own homegrown tomatoes!

I feel like gazpacho is becoming a big thing now—good for you for being ahead of the trend! I love freezing soups for wintertime. I’ll have to give this a try.

This looks awesome, I always look for ways to use tomatoes since I only liked them either canned or cooked, yes I’m weird like that. And this looks to easy for words, which makes me a tad excited.

I’ve only ever had gazpacho once and I wasn’t a fan – it tasted like tomato juice! This looks like it would definitely have more flavour to it though!
