The great thing about gazpacho is that it packs a flavorful punch and it is very easy to make. It’s a great summer appetizer or meal accompaniment, especially next to a large salad or zucchini noodle entree. You can also enjoy gazpacho even if you don’t follow a raw vegan diet. It’s a light entry point to a meal, providing you with lots of nutrients and flavors without filling you up.

Gazpacho is a cold soup or drink made from raw vegetables that you blend together. It originated in the souther regions of the Iberian peninsula, and it is a very common dish to eat in Spain and Portugal. People primarily enjoy this dish during the summer because it is refreshing and cool. Most gazpacho recipes include tomatoes, onion, bell peppers, garlic, olive oil, water, and sea salt. This recipe has many of those ingredients, save for the bell peppers. It does bring more fresh herbs to the party, enhancing the depth of flavor.

This gazpacho calls for fresh cilantro, mint, and a little basil for topping. It also includes one jalapeño, which gives this raw soup a little fiery kick. If you are opposed to spicier flavors, use less of the jalapeño, or choose a more mild pepper like poblano. The acidity and sweetness of the tomatoes, however, do a good job to mellow the intensity of the jalapeño, so don’t worry too much!
