SIMPLE SUMMER GAZPACHO

What I love most about this recipe is the quantity of fresh, summer vegetables! It is the perfect way to use up your farmers market or CSA tomatoes and other fresh produce.

This easy gazpacho recipe requires a few key ingredients:

Tomatoes – Tomatoes are the base of this recipe and the star of the show! Feel free to use your favorite – on-the-vine, roma, heirloom, beefsteak. Any will do!

Garlic and shallots – I add garlic to pretty much everything and this gazpacho is the same! You want this little punch of flavor – so don’t leave it out!

Pesto – HELLO. Fresh pesto in the summer is one of my favorite things – great, fresh flavor. And it adds a little bit more fat to help offset the acid of all those tomatoes.

Salt and pepper – If Samin taught be anything, it’s that you need to season liberally with salt!

In addition to the bounty of fresh veggies in this gazpacho soup, I adore that is it made in a blender in just TWO steps:

  1. Make the soup. Add all of the gazpacho ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Season to taste with extra salt if needed.
  2. Serve. Pour into bowls and top with fresh chives, tomatoes, and a drizzle of pesto.

As Ina says, ‘How easy is that?!’
