Barefoot Bloggers -- Gazpacho

Though I typically love Ina's recipes, I wasn't sure about this gazpacho as I'm not a huge fan of raw, cold soups. Instead of using cucumber I used zucchini, just in case we didn't like the soup raw, I could cook it and perhaps use it as a topping for rice or pasta. No one was more surprised than I was when the soup turned out to be quite tasty. I don't think I could eat huge bowls of it as the raw onion is a bit strong, but it made a nice summer supper with some bread and a big bowl of pineapple.

Meryl, of My Bit of Earth, chose this yummy gazpacho, so please check out her blog for the recipe.

  1. Yours looks fantastic, it has such deep red color! Mine was more muddled, but I used vegetable juice.

  2. Mmmm, are those pumpkin seeds on top? Very good idea! I'll bet they added a nice crunch.

  3. Thanks for the comments.

    I used V-8 for the juice, but I let it sit around for awhile so I think the soup turned a deeper color because my onions were a very deep purple.

    Yes! Pumpkin seeds.
