It is so hot outside that I can literally drink a saucepan of gazpacho soup. Luckily I have a wonderful recipe for gazpacho, so you can join my «cold soup consumer» club too.

Ingredients

Gazpacho: Directions

Step 1

Wash 2 tomatoes and make cross cuts on the bottom of each. You can choose red tomatoes, as well as yellow and black to get a richer color of soup. Tomatoes must be fleshy and with a minimum number of stones.

Then carefully remove the thin skin from the tomatoes. In Spain, as a rule, the skin of vegetables is not removed, as it has a lot of vitamins, but without the skin the structure of gazpacho will be softer. I chose the second option.

Before serving the soup, be sure to cool it - put it in the fridge for a few hours. Serve in a frozen plate - slightly moisten it with water and place in the freezer for 10 minutes. When serving, add 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar to the soup and place a crispy slice of bread on the top.
