Very easy to make and delicious. I used the in-store made breadcrumbs from Whole Foods because I didn't have a baguette on hand. Used my Vitamix blender which meant it was super smooth even without straining it. Added some chopped shrimp and cilantro as garnishes to the soup. Perfect for a hot day.
I just got back from a trip to Spain, and sampled many Gazpacho recipes from tapas restaurants in the Andalusia region. This recipe stacks up very well next to authentic gazpacho, and may, in some instances, surpass what I had in Spain. One difference, though: I made the soup in my Vitamix blender, so it was exceptionally creamy and smooth. You really need to watch the proportion of onion in this recipe. You may be better off uses less, and then make adjustments as necessary.
Just made it with ripe tomatoes from our garden and it is fabulous! Followed the recipe exactly except that I didn't have day old bread so I ended up using a fresh one, but I don't think it mattered. So refreshing, light and easy!
This is our favorite gazpacho by far. We serve it with chopped jalapeno and white onion garnish.
Superb! I come back to this recipe every summer without fail. Adding a chiffonade of basil on top, adds to the 'taste of summer'.
This gazpacho is wonderful. Good tomatoes are a must. Don't even think about making this recipe with the pale, tasteless tomatoes sold in most grocery stores. I substituted a red bell pepper for the green pepper.
