No need to pull out the pots and pans or fire up the stove for this one! All you need is a good blender! Yep…just chop everything up, toss in the blender, puree until smooth, and enjoy! You can strain it if you want, but I prefer all the fibrous bits, so I don’t bother. Add a drizzle of olive oil or a splash of vinegar if you prefer, and that’s it! So easy!

Did anyone else think Gazpacho was some super fancy soup that took a long time to make and was far to complicated to make at home?
Blender Gazpacho Soup
- 6-7 large roma tomatoes
- 1 large cucumber * peeled
- 2 cubanelle peppers * or Anaheim
- 1 sweet onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vinegar * I used balsamic
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Cut the tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, and sweet onion into large chunks and add to a blender along with the garlic.
- Blend until very smooth, about 2 minutes.
- Strain through a fine mesh strainer if desired (I skip this step) and refrigerate until chilled.
- With the motor still running, add the salt and vinegar then slowly pour in the olive oil until fully blended.
- Taste and adjust the salt and vinegar, as desired.
Tips and Techniques for the Best Gazpacho Soup
- Use the freshest vegetables available for the best flavor. Choose organic, when possible.
- Use a high-quality extra virgin olive oil for the best flavor.
- It is recommended to enjoy this soup at room temperature or chilled rather than heated.
- How long should Gazpacho Soup chill? In order for the soup to be fully chilled, you will need to keep it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
