Gazpacho is ac soup made of raw vegetables that is served cold on hot summer days. The fact that there is little or no cooking involved helps preserve more vitamins and minerals from fresh vegetables. The only ingredient that requires cooking in my recipe are the peppers which I roast in the oven prior to blending to bring out more flavour.

Although Gazpacho is great just by itself, you can serve it with a dollop of sour cream or cheese on top or even with low-carb bread such as Keto Buns or Breadsticks. Half a serving is great as a starter while the full serving is enough for lunch or light dinner.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This gazpacho looks delicious, but my son is allergic to avocados.  Any ideas for a substitute? Or could I successfully just leave them out?

That's a tough one! But it's doable... I'd say maybe more cucumber, tomatoes, peppers... any of the other vegetables.
(I'm sorry for the delayed response, life gets busy with newborn twins!)

Why call it a car if it's a bicycle?
Nice cold vegetable soup though.

I am from Spain and truly, this is not gazpacho. Avocado?  Feta? It is misleading to call it that way.

Dear Lila, I explained why I call it that way in the comments above.

How much is considered a serving?  I only see where it says it makes 6 servings.  It would be helpful to know if that is 1C, 1/2C? I put homemade gazpacho in My Fitness Pal and it calculated 37.9g carbs with 7.1 fiber.  That put me way over for the day.  Hoping since my recipe closely followed yours that your data is a closer match.

Hi Libby, one serving will be about one cup 😊 I wouldn't worry about MFP, they use a "shared database" (anyone can add foods with any macros) which is not very accurate. The foods they have are often missing fibre and that's why you will see more carbs. If you want to get accurate data, try the USDA database (we use it in our app and on this website too). Hope this helps!

I haven't made a gazpacho before and I love how easy, healthy and delicious you make it look. Definitely something I am inspired to try.

Thank you Thalia! Hope you like this one 😊

I made this last night and it is incredibly delicious. Very creamy from the avocado, and with smokey undertones from the roast pepper. The feta also works very well. I love traditional gazpacho as it is done in Spain as well, but this is a much more substantial affair so I think the two fulfil very different purposes. The Spanish gazpacho is a fantastically tasty and refreshing vitamin bomb for the Summer, your version is a full, satisfying meal.

Thank you very much Lukas, I'm glad you liked it!! I guess the feta and roasted pepper show my Greek influence 😊

Hi! Although it does look very yummy, I am afraid I have to give some constructive cristisism as this has nothing to do with a real Gazpacho ( trust me, I have been living in Spain for all of my life and Gazpacho is one of my favorites and I have tried all the variations there are). I am still gone try your soup though 😊

Thank you Julia. Yes, I agree that this is more like my "special" version - with the roasted red pepper and feta 😊 Hope you like it!
