What is Gazpacho?

Gazpacho is a cold vegetable soup made with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, garlic, onions, and sometimes bread. It originated in Spain and has been around since Roman times. Traditionally served as a starter or appetizer before a meal, gazpacho is a great way to cool down on hot summer days. It’s also incredibly healthy — loaded with vitamins and nutrients like lycopene (from tomatoes) and beta-carotene (from peppers). Plus, it’s vegan and vegetarian friendly!

Different Types of Gazpacho

There are many different variations of gazpacho that you can try — from traditional recipes to creative twists. Traditional Spanish gazpacho includes tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, garlic, olive oil and vinegar. While in Andalusia they add breadcrumbs for texture. In some parts of Spain they even add fruit like oranges or watermelon! If you want something more unique you can try adding ingredients like avocado or cilantro — yum!
