What’s Cookin? Chunky Gazpacho Soup

IMG_2409People love soup, but many of us don’t feel like a hot meal in the middle of summer!  Enter gazpacho.  Gazpacho is a cold, fresh soup, usually tomato-based, and originating in the southern region of Spain.  This gazpacho is partly blended and partly chunky to mimic the texture of the warm soups we’re used to.

This recipe is vegan and gluten-free.  Takes about 30 minutes to prepare and serves 6.
