Worldly Wednesday – Gorgeous Gazpatcho (and its flipping easy!!!!).

Right. I swear to you. This is one of THE EASIEST meals ever.  Hands Down. Finito.

Gazpatcho is a Spanish dish, a cold tomato soup.  It sounds strange however its great on a hot summers’ day.  Very refreshing!

Use it as I did for a dinner party starter or for a cold item on a menu platter.  No worries! It Rocks!!!


All you need is:

1 x green capsicum – deeseeded and chopped

2 x cloves garlic – chopped

1/2 cucumber – peeled and chopped

4-5 large tomatoes – blanched in water to remove the skins

1/4 loaf yesterdays bread – soaked in 100mls water

1 x lug good olive oil

black cracked pepper

salt to taste (almost none)


Peel and chop all your veg and put aside in a bowl

Boil some water and pop in your tomatoes for 2 mins or until skins start peeling back

Peel tomatoes and place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and whizz until smooth

Place in fridge to chill for at least 2 hrs prior to serving….prefrably longer!

I used shot glasses with a topping of baby basil leaves and good olive oil to serve.  It made a fantastic appetiser and my guests loved it!!

You could also use a topping of Jamon, Chargrilled Red Peppers or Quail Eggs, soft/hard boiled.  Any  of these would be just as fantastic!!

NOTE:  Remember if you want to do Gluten free……just use gluten fee bread!!!



  1. It is getting coooold where I am so Gazpatcho will not be served until next summer.
