You may think raw soups are a new thing created by the raw or living foods movement but gazpacho is a raw vegan dish that has been eaten in Spain and South America for generations. It is especially good right now in the height of summer while tomatoes are at their most flavorful. If you have a garden full of tomatoes, lucky you!

Feel free as always to adapt this recipe to reflect your favorite flavors and what you have on hand. This version has some heat to it from the cayenne or jalapeño. If you prefer something milder simply omit it, or add even more to kick it up a notch!

I’m going to give this a try. It’s been a long time since I’ve made Gazpacho. I was actually planning to make a tomato and corn soup tonight for dinner. I will make two separate batches.

I was thinking corn might be a nice think to add to a Gazpacho too. I hope you enjoy it Sandra!
