In the Spanish cuisine, Gazpacho is a cold soup, perfect to start the meal with some raw vegetables. Well appreciated during the hot summer in Andalucía region.
There are at least 60 versions of Gazpacho, some of them are very spicy, others very mild.
Anyway, the main ingredients are traditionally the same for all of them: peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions, enriched with many different aromatic herbs.
Unmissable is stale bread, which, soften with water, makes the whole soup creamier. However, Gazpacho has to be eaten cold, sometimes even with some ice cubes, toasted bread and boiled eggs. Furthermore, it is an ingredient for aperitifs and even an energetic fresh drink.
An excellent idea for hot and humid summers!
