- Prepare Vegetables: In a food processor, pulse chop each of the first 7 ingredients individually until they are roughly chopped into 1/4-inch pieces.
- Combine Ingredients: Transfer the chopped vegetables to a large bowl. Add the minced garlic, tomato juice, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
- Chill: Place the Gazpacho soup in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or, ideally, overnight. This allows the flavors to meld together and the soup to become nicely chilled.
- Serve: When ready to serve, ladle the chilled Gazpacho into bowls. If desired, drizzle a small amount of Flaxseed oil on top for an extra layer of flavor and nutrition. Alternatively, garnish with finely chopped avocados for a creamy texture and added richness.
- Gazpacho is a perfect choice for a refreshing cold soup, especially on a hot summer day. Its vibrant colors and fresh flavors make it a delightful appetizer or light meal.
- Be sure to let the soup sit in the fridge for a little while to allow the flavors to mingle and intensify, resulting in a more satisfying taste.
- Customize your Gazpacho with your favorite toppings or add-ins, like croutons or a dash of hot sauce, to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy!
