Easy Gazpacho Recipe

5 from 16 reviews

This flavor packed chilled Spanish soup with sun-ripened tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, sweet red bell pepper, jalapeno and garlic is made easy in a food processor.  It is ideal for the hot summer months and tasty enough for luncheon engagements.


  • 4 large tomatoes peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 small yellow or red onion chopped
  • 1/2 English cucumber peeled and chopped
  • 1 small red pepper chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeno minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram


  1. In a large bowl gently stir together tomatoes, onion, cucumber, red pepper, garlic, jalapeno, olive oil, salt, pepper, Tabasco Sauce, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, cumin, cayenne, basil and marjoram.
  2. Run 3/4’s of the mixture through a food processor on high until finely pureed.  Next combine the finely pureed mixture and the reserved chopped vegetables in an airtight container.  Refrigerate and chill for 2 hours up to overnight.


  • Use fresh garden sun-ripened tomatoes and cucumbers.
  • If you do not have a food processor than you can use a blender.
  • Everyone’s palate is different so adjust the seasoning and herbs to your taste. I know a lot of people think basil can be overwhelming.  If you are one of those peeps add a little at a time and taste.
  • I like my gazpacho with a little kick so I add several dashes of Tabasco Sauce.  If you don’t like the heat than omit it or reduce it.
  • If you prefer a smoother gazpacho than run everything through the food processor on high and then through a fine mesh strainer.
  • Garnish with homemade croutons, finely chopped veggies, or fresh herbs.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
