Gazpacho: TOP 3 recipes for cold soup

Gazpacho is a traditional Spanish dish originally from Andalusia. Cooking gazpacho in summer is a great option for lunch and dinner in the hot period, which is a cold grated tomato soup.

Garlic, herbs, bread, cucumbers and other ingredients can be added to this soup, but the main one will still be tomato. Tomatoes should be ripe. Before cooking, you need to remove the skin from the tomatoes. To do this, first pour boiling water over the fruits. Then you need to remove the seeds and cut the tomatoes into small pieces.

  • 700 g of ripe tomatoes
  • 2 cucumbers 10 cm long
  • 4 green onion feathers
  • 1 large bell pepper
