Okay, it's actually called gazpacho. But whenever I make this summer soup, I think of produce stands and the farmers' market. Can't you imagine a morning out at the veggie stands with your market tote picking fresh produce for a cool, refreshing soup? If you like summer vegetables, you have to try it.
It's made up mostly of tomatoes, cucumber, celery, and green peppers. The recipe I used calls for onion and garlic, but I'd actually leave that out if you don't want it to taste like salsa. You can find the recipe here – as well as several others. Use low-sodium tomato juice and broth to make it a bit healthier. And add a little more cucumber. Yum.
The kitchen cuttings are great for the compost bin – or they make the perfect ingredients for your little helper to make a "pretend soup" alongside you.
We serve it with an easy peasant bread recipe – easy enough for my little one to make, although everything she does in the kitchen she does with earnest:
Oh – that just looks so good. I’ve always wondered about gazpacho – I hear it is delicious and I think you’ve convinced me to give it a try. 🙂
I’m hosting a “Farmer’s Market Report” Mr. Linky. I’d be thrilled if you’d come by and check it out! Perhaps you’d like to submit this post? Here’s the link: https://toeverymeal.blogspot.com/2008/08/farmers-market-report-aug-9th.html

Chloe Mee says
Ooooh it looks very tasty.
I think I will have to make a trip to our local market next week and have a go at making it.
That is one of my most favorite soups. I haven’t made it yet this season. I think I need to soon. Thanks for the reminder.
I think little floured faces are my favorite. I love taking pictures of my children working in the kitchen.
That bread looks really good! And so beautiful!
Happy summer soup! 🙂
