“When my husband and I were visiting Toledo, Spain, we enjoyed a refreshing, tangy, and creamy bowl of gazpacho outside a small church at a tiny storefront restaurant. I had never tasted anything like it. I asked how they made it and developed this recipe to take home. If you like, serve chopped cucumbers, peppers, and parsley as a garnish.”

There is no real "original" Andalusian style Gazpacho but this is pretty close to most. I lived in Seville and the part-time local cook made a much more bold version which becomes quite addictive, especially on hot days. This recipe calls for about 2X the garlic and 2x the cucumber. Also no cayenne. I believe a red pepper is better as it will keep the soup red and not brown. Here in the States I buy the Pomi brand chopped tomatoes (excellent low sodium) makes it real easy and they are flavorful. This is the kind of recipe you can experiment to make it to your particular taste. But the basics of this recipe is right and original to Andalusia.

Thank you for recognizing that classic gazpacho has bread in it!! Add a tablespoon of tomato paste for more flavor

A huge hit-- this stuff went quick. I added a tablespoon of tomato paste (as per another reviewers suggestion) at the end; it didn't taste tomato-y enough with out it. I also added cumin to taste (maybe 1/4 teaspoon). Which it didn't need, but gave it a unique and totally delicious flavor.
