Green Gazpacho

  • Jump to Recipe
  • Traditional comfort foods are sometimes too hot and heavy for summer, but I still crave dishes that make me feel warm and fuzzy. Well, warm emotionally, because, during the summer, I like my soup chilled.

    Which is why Green Gazpacho falls onto my comfort food list.

    Green Gazpacho is a chilled soup made from cucumber, tomatillos and jalapenos with a yogurt base. A perfect make ahead soup to serve on a hot summer day! #gazpachoreciep #chilledsoup www.savoryexperiments.com

    Most people would agree that a hot bowl of soup does not sound good on a hot summer day. However, that does not mean you have to go without it. Chilled soups are absolutely perfect on those days when the temperatures are high.

    Make sure to PIN Green Gazpacho!

    This green gazpacho soup uses a handful of green produce such as tomatillos, limes, cucumbers, bell peppers, and jalapenos for the perfect blend of spicy, sweet, and most importantly, cool.

    When looking for tomatillos at the store, check that the outer husk is still attached and that the fruit (yes, it is a fruit just like a tomato) is a vibrant green. This means that it is ripe which means bright, acidic, and a bit tangy. Perfect for soup.

    If you don’t see any that match that description, not to worry. The ones there might be a pale yellow or a lighter green which means the fruit is overripe. These still taste great but will be a little sweeter and pack less zing.

    The Spaniards are to thank for gazpacho. While it is typically red, this chilled soup is eaten all over Spain and Portugal in the summer months as a way to cool down in the heat AND to make use of the bounty of summer produce.

    And this is no new thing for them. This soup is written about in history books all the way back to Greek and Roman times.

    The added bonus of this dish is how easy it is to make. A little bit of prep and a blender and you are ready to serve. Fresh, bright, and alive with color and flavor.

    I am sure you have had some gazpachos that leave a little bit to be desired in the texture department. Well, have you ever wondered what gives blended soups volume and body?

    The answer might surprise you. It’s bread. Well, in this case it is actually bread and Greek yogurt, but you get the point.

    Torn bread blended well with other ingredients will make any soup more substantial and eliminate the worry of watery porridge. Gluten-free bread can be substituted for those with allergies or guests that might have dietary restrictions.

    Also of note, chilled soups can become muted in flavor, especially if they sit for a bit before serving. While Green Gazpacho is an excellent make-ahead, no-bake, no-cook option, make sure you stir well and correct the salt before serving to your guests.

    To make Green Gazpacho into an entree, add grilled shrimp, scallops or corn. Garnish with beautiful microgreens.
