If you would like to get better acquainted with Spanish cuisine, start with the classic gazpacho. It is a delicious soup made from raw vegetables that typically includes a base of tomato.

There are several theories about the origin of the name. Arabs, Mosarabs, and Jews lived in modern southern Spain until the 15th century. Therefore, according to one version, it is derived from the Mozarabic word caspa, meaning “leftovers”. In those days, they used leftovers to prepare the dish.

Another version says that the word gazpacho comes from the Hebrew word gazaz, meaning “cut into pieces”, “crushed”. These words characterize the cooking process.

Whatever the correct version, the recipe for classic gazpacho has been passed down from generation to generation, surviving to this day, and is a source of pride for Spaniards.

Interestingly, in Spain, they consider gazpacho more of a drink than a soup, and therefore they can serve it not only on a plate but also in a glass.

Try making gazpacho at home. We promise you will not regret it!

Steps

1
Done

Fry the unpeeled garlic cloves in a frying pan without oil until they become soft and blackened in some places (for approximately 10–15 minutes). Then remove the pan from the heat and let the garlic cool. When the garlic has cooled, peel it and put it in a food processor with peeled tomatoes cut into medium-sized pieces. Process until mashed.

2
Done

Separately grind cucumbers and bell peppers into small pieces. Combine all the prepared vegetables in one bowl, top them with tomato juice.

3
Done

Add spices, olive oil, and white wine vinegar. Add Tabasco sauce to taste. Put the soup in the fridge.

The longer the soup cools in the fridge, the tastier it becomes. Therefore, be patient and let it sit there for a while. By the way, there are multiple versions of gazpacho, so you can safely improvise and change the recipe to your liking.

Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would
have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if
you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
your new updates.

Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! “Feeling passionate about something is like getting a peak at your soul smiling back at you.” by Amanda Medinger.

I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using?
I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest site and I
would like to find something more safe. Do you have any solutions?

Greetings I am so grateful I found your weblog, I really found you by error,
while I was browsing on Askjeeve for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a
incredible post and a all round entertaining blog (I also love the theme/design),
I don’t have time to read through it all at the minute but I
have saved it and also included your RSS feeds, so
when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the superb job.

Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website?
I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking
at alternatives for another platform. I would be great
if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

You’ve made some decent points there. I checked on the web
for additional information about the issue and found most people
will go along with your views on this web site.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog
and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips
or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
