Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a cold Spanish tomato based soup which is ideal for summers due to its being cold and acidic in nature. And as I am trying to eat healthy I was browsing for some good soup recipe and came across Gazpacho...this soup perfectly suited us and it has lot of scope for variations. This soup is rich in Vitamin C, is  low in calories and trans fats.


Ingredients:

Bread( White or Brown)- 2-3 slices
Tomatoes- 4 Large quartered
Cucumber- 1sliced
Capsicum- 1 medium diced
Garlic- 2-3 cloves
Vinegar or lime juice- 2 tbsp
Olive Oil- 1 tsp
Salt- to taste

Procedure:
  • Soak the bread in little water and squeeze out the excess water.
  • Add all the ingredients in the blender along with soaked bread slices and process till every thing is ground.

  • Strain the soup and keep in the refrigerator. Serve chilled and garnish with bread cubes, chopped tomatoes and capsicum.
Variations: Tomatoes and bread can be replaced with either Avocados, watermelon, grapes. Onion can also be added and cucumber may be omitted.
