I like my soup to have smoothie like smooth consistency. If you prefer some texture or chunky pieces, blend little less.

The raw vegetables provide generous nutrients and fiber. This wholesome soup recipe gives our bodies a nice vibrant and fresh boost.
The olive oil helps with creamy smooth texture and vinegar gives nice zest! Finish it off with fresh herbs and freshly ground black pepper.
SMOOTH OR CHUNKY GAZPACHO?
Texture is a matter of personal preference and it’s easy to adjust. I like smooth puree like consistency, so I blend it like a smoothie.
If you like chunky mouthfeel, then blend it to coarse texture. That will leave few chunky bits and pieces of the vegetables.
I do not sieve the soup, but you certainly can if you like super smooth puree.
INGREDIENTS OF VEGAN GAZPACHO SOUP
Fresh Vegetables – I use tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, red onion and celery. You can use any vegetables that you can typically eat raw for this recipe.
Fresh Herbs – Parsley, cilantro, mint , basil and chives all are good choices.
For Flavors – Minced garlic, Red wine vinegar, salt and fresh ground black pepper work well. A teaspoon of cumin seeds blended with veggies add wonderful flavors. I also like to add pinch of cayenne pepper for spicy kick as a garnish.
Olive Oil – Blending the veggies with quality extra virgin olive oil brings the smooth creaminess to the soup. Skip it if you want to make this WFPB – No oil recipe.

Useful Kitchen Tools
Cut vegetables into big chunks . I prefer to de-seed the tomatoes. If the cucumbers have tough seeds, remove them too.
One by one add all the ingredients in the blender jar. You may have to batch blend it if everything doesn’t fit in one bowl.
Run the blender to make a smooth puree. Taste, and season with extra salt and pepper and/or lemon juice if needed.
Cover and refrigerate for a few hours to chill. Or serve immediately, topped with your desired garnishes.
1) I do not sieve the soup, but you certainly can if you like super smooth puree.
2) If you feel the soup is too thick for the consistency, add some water and quickly blend it.
3) If the tomatoes are too sweet, drizzle some lemon juice as a garnish to balance the flavors.
4) This soup tastes best when chilled so make it as early as possible and then refrigerate until ready to serve.
