Gazpacho Soup


Have you ever heard the poem, "Some like it hot; some like it cold?" Well, this soup is supposed to be served cold!



  • 4 large tomatoes, peeled and diced
  • ½ English cucumber, peeled and finely diced
  • ½ cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup minced green onion
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pinch dried oregano
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


Combine diced tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, green onion, jalapeno and garlic in a large bowl. Stir in salt, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper and black pepper. Place cherry tomatoes, olive oil, lime juice, balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce in a blender. Cover and puree until smooth. Pour pureed mixture through a strainer into the tomato-cucumber mixture; stir to combine.

Place one-third of the tomato mixture into the blender. Cover, turn blender on and puree until smooth. Return pureed mixture to the remaining tomato-cucumber mixture. Stir to combine. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for two hours. Season cold soup with salt and black pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with basil.

Dietary and Nutrition


Tomatoes are known for their high amounts of lycopene, which is a carotenoid pigment that gives tomatoes their red color. Lycopene is linked to reducing the risk of certain types of cancer and is better absorbed if the tomatoes have been cooked or canned.
