Author Notes

Gazpachos in general are a great quick and easy dish to make. Once you have a solid and reliable recipe, this soup can be very versatile by changing up the fruit or vegetable that goes in it. This version has a delightful sweetness and can be a starter to your meal or can be the meal itself if served with a side salad or grilled vegetables and thick slices of bread. —Chef Reza Setayesh | Plant Loving Humans
