A Garden Fresh Soup for Hot Days

I've been blessed to have friends and family that have an over-abundance of tomatoes, cucumbers, jalapenos, bell peppers, onions and garlic in their gardens (I have an over-abundance of basil...and one plant that may or may not be a weed). I'm telling you all of this because those ingredients are exactly what you throw into a blender to make the most refreshing and yummy gazpacho ever! (If you haven't heard of or tried this delicious Italian cold soup, you are in for a treat). AND if you don't have a green thumb (like me)...just go to the store and grab these yummy ingredients. Easiest soup EVER!

E.H. Fitness Garden Gazpacho

What you need: 
  • 3-4 large, ripe tomatoes cut into chunks
  • 1 large cucumber, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic, you guessed it, cut into chunks
  • 1 bell pepper (any color), cut into chunks
  • 1 jalapeno if you like it a bit on the spicy side

  • LOTS of FRESH basil  (if you don’t have any growing in your garden and can’t swipe some from a neighbor, pony up and get some fresh from the store)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 cup red wine vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
What you do: 
  1. Throw everything in a blender and turn it on. Blend until it’s soup. Crazy easy, right? Put in the fridge and serve super chilled!
Tada! You did it! Enjoy!
