  • 1 kg ripe or overripe tomatoes  Don't peel
  • 70 g cucumber Don't peel
  • 50 g green pepper Seeds 'n all
  • 1 clove garlic Peeled
  • 40 g onion Peeled
  • 150 g stale bread
  • 50 g olive oil Extra virgin is best
  • 30 g sherry vinegar
  • 200 g water Adjust to suit
  • 1 tsp salt Adjust to suit


  • Roughly chop your ingredients
  • Place all the ingredients in your food blender
  • Blend everything together on half speed/ power for 30 seconds
  • Programme 3 minutes at full speed/ power
  • Add water and blend for a further 2 minutes on 80% speed setting
  • Cool in the fridge for a couple of hours.


  • Gazpacho is best served chilled. If you're in a hurry and don't have time to wait for it to cool in the fridge just add a few ice cubes! Another tip is to use ingredients straight from the fridge and used chilled water.
  • You can adjust the consistency by adding more or less bread to suit.
  • Try your own twist. We love swapping the tomatoes for watermelon or adding strawberries for a sweeter summer's delight.
