Gazpacho is a refreshing summer soup served raw, making it the perfect recipe when it is too warm to eat but you want a cool, hydrating and filling lunch. More of a drink than a soup,  this is a great way to consume plenty of fluids to keep hydrated!

Gazpacho is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It’s a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as iron, calcium, manganese, phosphorus and potassium. It’s also high in fiber and antioxidant lycopene.

This fresh gazpacho comes together fast and easy in the blender.  However, if you need to, you can make it ahead, as gazpacho can be refrigerated overnight. But fresh is always best. For maximum nutritional punch consume immediately after making.

This beautiful golden gazpacho is loaded with fresh vegetables – full of flavor and bursting with nutrients.

It’s seasoned with turmeric which boasts anti-inflammatory benefits, and lends this soup a beautiful golden color. Jalapeño adds subtle heat.
