quick and easy summer gazpacho [recipe]

Simple Summer Gazpacho Recipe

Ingredients

  • tomatoes – maybe 7-8 medium
  • 1-2 ears of raw corn (1/2 in blender, 1/2 in straight)
  • lots of basil – 1+ cups
  • 1-2 banana peppers
  • 1 small cucumber (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  • sugar
  • vinegar (rice or apple cider) or lemon juice

Method

  1. You will need a blender or food processor. Chop the tomatoes, basil, peppers, and cucumber roughly and then roughly blend/process them in your blender/processor. If you like a very smooth puree, blend more; if you like it chunky, blend less.
  2. I like to add the corn after blending the rest because I like the kernels whole. It’s also good to blend it in.
  3. Add salt and pepper, sugar, and vinegar/lemon juice to taste. This is what makes the flavors come out so add these to your preference.

Do let me know if you try it. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Looks delicious – jealous of your garden bounty! I’ve never been a fan of cold or room temp soups, but I will defintely try this, and thankful there is no onions! 😀

  2. That looks so good! Dad made some the other day but he put store-bought tomato juice in it. I’ve been wondering if there was a way you can make it without that. Thanks for the recipe 🙂
