Best Gazpacho Soup Recipe: I saw a very interesting recipe for a Gazpacho Soup and thought how can I make this an Asian version? This is the outcome. I think you will like this.

Gazpacho is a cold soup originating from Andalusia, Spain. It’s made from fresh vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, and bread. This refreshing dish is perfect for hot summer days.

I know you are going to think. I am bonkers. But give this a go. Tomato and strawberry are great bedfellows.

The big surprise is the very first ingredient. I tell you though it really does work! This is a delicious soup recipe

Best Gazpacho Soup Recipe: This will serve about 4-6:

  • 2-3, 250g punnets of strawberries;
  • 1 finely chopped garlic clove;
  • 3 finely chopped medium-sized shallots;
  • 1/2 finely chopped red capsicum;
  • 2 Chinese cucumbers chopped with the seeds removed (skin on is OK);
  • 1 small bunch of tarragon;
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar;
  • 1/2 cup olive oil;
  • 1 tin of concentrated tomato juice;
  • Some slices of jambon or prosciutto; and
  • 2-3 finely sliced chili padi.

And we're off to create a masterpiece: The Best Gazpacho Soup Recipe

  • Add the strawberries, garlic, onion, capsicum, cucumber, tarragon, vinegar, oil, tomato juice, and chili in a bowl and mash with a potato masher;
  • Let this stand for 2-3 hours in the fridge, and then puree with a hand blender;
  • Then pass this liquid through a sieve to remove the lumpy, pulpy bits;
  • Back in the fridge to let this chill for 30 minutes or so before serving.

Top this with some prosciutto or parma ham, and a quick drizzle of olive oil, or even some pesto.

I tell you serve this up and watch the faces when you ask or tell what the secret ingredient is. They will have no idea I tell you. Hence not giving the game away in the title of the dish. Keep them guessing I say. If anyone guesses it’s strawberry soup, I’d be extremely surprised – in fact, I’d eat my soup! This is the Best Gazpacho Soup Recipe, plus a secret ingredient – ENJOY!!!
