Refreshing Cold Summer Soup Recipe

Many years ago I had the opportunity to spend time in the Canary Islands on the island of Las Palmas. While I was there I was fortunate enough to learn to cook some authentic Spanish cuisine, and it’s also where I had my first Mojito.

In Spain when it’s hot outside the Spanish make a refreshing chilled soup called Gazpacho. I like to make it every summer, but since Wednesday is 4th of July I thought I would share it with you for you to enjoy. I think it’s a nice complement to some of the heavier foods you may be enjoying tomorrow.

Mommy’s Organics Authentic Spanish Gazpazho

6 ripe red organic tomatoes peeled and chopped

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs

2/3 cup water

1 medium cucumber peeled, seeded, chopped

1 medium red bell pepper, seeded, chopped

1/2 tablespoon of salt. You may add more depending on your taste buds.

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 to 5 garlic cloves chopped

1/4 tablespoon cumin

Add all the ingredients in a blender.

Optional: The way I was taught to make Gazpazho was that after blending, add 1 cup of ice to the soup and store in an air tight container over night. This will ensure the soup isn’t salty from the seasoned bread crumbs.

When you’re ready to serve, stir the soup to release the flavors and Enjoy! Optional: add a slice of fresh avocado for garnish.

Hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July!
