Looking for a quick and fresh starter for summer! This Gluten Free Tomato Gazpacho recipe is perfect. This cold soup can be served as a starter, as an aperitif served in small glasses or verrines or as a main course for a light meal.

Why a gluten-free gazpacho?

The traditional Andalusian recipe for gazpacho requires adding bread to thicken the cold soup. To make a gluten-free gazpacho, you can either just remove the bread.

If the bread is completely removed, without any replacement, the gazpacho can being too liquid and the ingredients will not mix as well. My technique for making a gluten-free gazpacho is to add chickpeas in the preparation. Chickpeas add thickness to cold soup and make it more nutritious while remaining very light.

How to prepare a tomato gazpacho?

The preparation of a gazpacho is very simple and does not require cooking . Since it is a cold soup, you can mix the vegetables without cooking them in advance.

The only step that requires a little preparation is to peel the tomatoes and possibly the pepper if you use one. To do this, make a cross cut on the tomatoes and peppers, then soak them in boiling water for 30 seconds to a minute. Run them under cold water and then remove the skin with a knife. This will come off on its own.

Note that this step is optional, you can easily make your gazpacho, leaving the skin on to save time.

Peel the tomatoes

Then you just have to place all the ingredients in a blender and mix until you get a homogeneous consistency.

Gazpacho is served cold. I therefore advise you to keep it refrigerated until you serve it, if you prepare it ahead of time.
