Mouth Watering Gazpacho

Mouth Watering Gazpacho

This Gazpacho is a phenomenal dish which can be enjoyed by its self or with a delicious crispy grilled cheese. Gazpacho originated in Spain and it is healthy and can easily accommodate gluten free, Paleo, vegan and raw diets. The soup is cooling and makes for a wonderful lunch. We are nearing the last few weeks of summer and I didn’t want to miss sharing this recipe. It is kind of a mixture of other Gazpacho recipes I have seen throughout the years and I can’t even put enough emphasis on how good it is!

I have this thing for food that goes extremely well together or food that has a more gourmet/unique taste. That’s the case with this soup. I am madly in love with how well the grilled cheese sandwiches go with the Gazpacho. The grilled cheese is made with a crispy artisan bread, Spanish manchego cheese, goats cheese, olive oil, then rubbed with fresh garlic. The Gazpacho softens the bread just enough and it provides such a balance between the sweet tomato flavor and the potent cheese taste. One of the keys to this recipe is to allow the soup to sit overnight so the flavors become more distinct. I know most of the recipes I share are simple and quick to make but that’s another reason why I love this one so much. You can also make this Gazpacho at parties which I have done in the past. I just served it in shot glasses filled with the Gazpacho and a miniature grilled cheese on top (photo at the bottom). I will also mention again that you can use a gluten free bread in place of the artisan bread, you can use a vegan cheese, raw cheese, or omit the grilled cheese all together for my Paleo friends. The recipe is very versatile.

    That teacup looks like one my moethr would love (she was born and raised in England). What a sweet idea. We love tomato soup with our grilled cheese. Haven’t tried vege soup with them.
