Our favorite summer dish? Gazpacho, of course! This famous cold soup of Spanish origin is great quick recipe to whip up after a trip to the farmers' market.
Andalusian gazpacho has a special place in our hearts. In general, we follow the authentic recipe but there are dozens of variations, each one just as delicious as the original.
The rules are simple: gazpacho is a blend of different vegetables that should be served cold. Some gazpacho recipes call for bread but others do away with it altogether, which is great for the gluten-free crowd.
ANDALUSIAN GAZPACHO - THE AUTHENTIC RECIPE
Tradition always wins and gazpacho is no exception. The original Andalusian version is a summer staple. It is made with simple but delicious ingredients that blend together beautifully: tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, white onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Another popular Spanish cold soup is ajo blanco. This white soup hails from the regions of Malaga and Granada and is made with almonds and garlic. Some consider it a variation of gazpacho while others see the soup as a completely different dish. Either way, it's incredibly flavorful.
