Gazpacho

..a great soup for the cold winters,served piping hot,or an iced soup served in the hot summers..Ingredients and preparation

In Andalucía, most gazpacho recipes typically include stale bread, tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, onion and garlic, olive oil, wine vinegar, and salt.

The following is a typical method of preparing gazpacho:

The vegetables are washed and the tomatoes, garlic and onions are peeled.
All the vegetables and herbs are chopped and put into a large container (alternately, the tomatoes may be puréed in a blender or food processor, pounded with a mortar (the traditional way of making it) or strained and de-seeded with a food mill)[4]
The soaked bread is then added (optionally)
Some of the contents of the container are then blended until liquid, depending on the desired consistency.
Chilled water, olive oil, vinegar and salt are then added to taste.
The remaining contents of the container are added to the liquid, then briefly puréed until there is some texture remaining for garnish. (optional)
Garnishes may be made with fresh bell pepper slices, diced tomatoes and cucumber, or other fresh ingredients.

Traditionally, gazpacho is made by pounding the vegetables using a mortar and pestle. This method is still sometimes favoured as it helps keep the gazpacho cool and avoids the completely smooth consistency, and foam, created by blenders and food processors.[4]
Gazpacho with diced ingredients

In addition to the blended vegetable ingredients, it is also usually accompanied by different garnishes. These include the same vegetables the soup already contains, chopped up, as well as croutons.[5] The garnishes are served separately so the consumer can add them to the soup himself. When making the salmorejo variety from Cordoba, chopped hard boiled egg and ham (e.g. jamón serrano, jamón ibérico, etc.) will be placed on top. In Extremadura, gazpacho with local ham is called gazpacho extremeño. This time, the ham tends to be added to the soup in the kitchen prior to serving (unlike the other garnishes which are added at the table).

Gazpacho may also be served with ice cubes if it has not had enough time to chill before serving.
