Gazpacho Soup



Preparation Time: 10 mins
 
Notes: Summer lunch treat!! This is one of those dishes that owes everything to the quality of the ingredients. Fresh and simple, a blitz and go fuss free, vitamin packed dish. It’s also great the following day, as time allows the flavours to fully emerge… so make plenty! Tomato Tip: If the tomatoes have good acidity but lacking in sweetness add a teaspoon of castor sugar when blitzing! Add a sparkle to your Gazpacho: Try using sparkling water instead of still, and only seconds before serving!
