IMG_1649I know Gazpacho isn’t something everybody likes, Brian doesn’t, but I love it and I wish I had thought about making it during our recent spell of hot weather.   I am often put off making it because of all the chopping but while I was flicking through a Vitamix article it dawned on me that with the Vitamix it would be super easy and so it proved to be.  Cold soup seems very wrong to some people but it really is very refreshing and tasty not to mention stuffed full of vegetables so if you are trying to get your 5 a day ( or 10 a day if you are American) this is a good place to start.  I didn’t blend the soup to a pulp, I left it quite chunky.  Obviously you can add other vegetables if you want, celery maybe?  Garlic would also be nice unless you are the only one eating it!

      A food processor would work, does it have that attachment?
