Now that the summer has finally set in and the temperatures are soaring, what would be more tempting than a tasty and refreshing Gazpacho soup? Gazpacho originated from the southern Spanish region of Andalucia where it is regularly consumed during the hot summer months and is usually made of fresh tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, stale bread, garlic, water and vinegar. In the traditional method, all the ingredients are pounded using a pestle and mortar but with powerful blenders nowadays, it is made much easier and quicker.
