Soup-er cool!

The heatwave continues and with it the need for quick and easy, healthy recipes.

My family has been enjoying gazpacho, a cold Spanish soup made from vegetables. Containing tomatoes, onions, garlic and peppers, this soup is chock full of nutrients as well as being really cooling on a hot day. It can be made in advance and kept in the fridge until you want to serve it.



2 400g tins chopped tomatoes

1 cucumber, roughly chopped

1 red pepper, de-seeded and roughly chopped

1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped

2 cloves garlic, peeled

1 carton tomato juice

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste


Put all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Keep in the fridge until you want to serve the soup.
