Gazpacho = summer (food) love!

Gazpacho: a quick and easy summer soup recipe

I made two different batches; each batch a serving size of 5. the directions below are for one batch.

chop up half a green pepper and half a cucumber (cut the cucumber in half and take a spoon to the middle of each piece, removing seeds before chopping)

add one can of tomato juice (2 cups) to a blender, and toss in your chopped cucumber and pepper.

chop 1 cup of tomatoes (about a tomato and a half) and add to the blender.

chop half a regular sized onion and add to the blender.

finish by adding garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, spices, honey (which I use in place of sugar) and a dash of salt and pepper

and BLEND until it’s mixed but still a bit chunky
