Ooooh this soup is good. It's made chilled and you can make it with various fruits and vegetables. It's tomato based, but you can always change it up (you're the cook, remember!)
This is perfect for warm weather when you want something refreshing and cool. The temperatures haven't quite dipped yet (it's only autumn!) Either way, it's soooooo good. Gazpacho is a classic soup from Spain.
The soup isn't actually cooked at all, but rather the ingredients are blended together and served cold. Don't forget to have this soup with a side of bread! :-)
Have any of you tried gazpacho? Did you like it???????
