Before you ask, ¨I thought gazpacho was red?¨, you are correct. However, in Spain we offer 2 types of gazpachos, the traditional Gazpacho rojo, which is popular outside of Spain and this Gazpacho verde. This version is not as popular outside of Spain, but promises to be one of the best chilled soups you will ever taste.

Spanish ¨Green Goddess¨ Gazpacho Verde Recipe
I call this gazpacho verde, the ¨green goddess¨ gazpacho, just because it´s made with such an incredible array of green produce. We´re talking super simple ingredients here folks: bell peppers, cucumber, apples, garlic, etc… I also used some mint leaves to add a refreshing and cooling flavor, just make sure to not add too much, otherwise the mint will over-power the flavor of the gazpacho.

The secret to making this super simple gazpacho verde, is to use high-quality ingredients. Try to find the freshest produce you can, trust me, it makes all the difference in the flavor. Whether you enjoy this gazpacho on a scorching hot day or a mild winter day, you will absolutely love it.

    Hi Albert. Can green tomatoes be added to the green gazpacho or would that no go with the other ingredients?
    Thanks, Patricia
