A review from Spain. This is a recipe for a delicious vegetable cold soup, I made it yesterday. But it's not a Andalusian Gazpacho, sorry, it's just inspired. In the Gazpacho there's not: celery, navi beans, canned tomato juice (only fresh tomatoes), cumin, parsley, basil or oregano. You can add those ingredients for a very good, but all different, could soup. Read More

If you have leftover cucumbers and it's hot outside. Make yourself some of this cold soup. Made it the night before and when I came home from work it was ready to eat. Plus you can freeze it! Makes 10 servings. Was very good. I added some red hot to mine. Read More

Although this was easy I ended up throwing out all the leftovers. I think using fresh tomatoes rather than canned juice will make a big difference. I would reccomend trying a recipe with fresh ingredients before this one. Read More

Excellent recipe for a very refreshing summer soup. A touch of red pepper or a few drops of Tabasco give some extra zip. Read More

Ok not bad but not a Andalusian Gazpacho that I lived on for eleven Summers in Jerez Andalusia. Cut the beans juice and most of the spices and add a tall cold glass of Tinto Verano Read More
