Chilled Gazpacho


Chilled gazpacho is one of those soups that’s naturally sweet, juicy and tremendously flavorsome. Without even adding salt or pepper, sweet tomatoes and bell peppers make a bold statement saying “here I am, are you ready!!!”  Plus, given it is enjoyed cold, it makes for a great light and healthy summertime meal!

1/3 loaf French bread, inside soft bread only (approximately 1 cup), discard crust

1 yellow bell pepper, seeds removed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

4 heirloom or roma tomatoes, stem removed, each cut into 8 pieces

half cucumber, seeded and peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

kosher salt, as desired

freshly ground black pepper, as desired

1 avocado, thinly sliced

extra-virgin olive oil, as desired


1.   In a blender, like my personal favorite, Vitamix, or a food processor fitted with a blade attachment, add bread, bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, garlic, basil, sherry vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth, approximately 2 minutes. Adjust seasoning to taste with additional vinegar, salt or pepper as desired.

2.   As an optional garnish, serve with fresh avocado and a drizzle of olive oil on top to finish.


Kitchen Note: For best results, make the soup ahead and chill before serving.
