Roasted Pepper Gazpacho Recipe Notes

If you like a spicy, full of fire gazpacho, then substitute hot diced green chiles for the mild ones. Alternatively, just add a pinch of cayenne or hot sauce to the final blending.

If made ahead, it’s a good idea to taste before serving and re-season with salt and pepper and drop of oil and vinegar as needed. The soup absorbs the spices quickly.

Gazpacho Serving Suggestions

Toasted bread is a good side dish for this room temperature, or chilled gazpacho. Classically you’ll see tiny croutons served in the soup.

It’s easier for me to just toast or grill a slice of baguette, or country bread, and use it to dip in the soup.

Ways to Use Leftover Gazpacho Soup

Leftovers keep several days covered in the refrigerator. Sometimes if I have 1/2 cup or so left, I use it as a base for vinaigrettes, chicken or fish marinades.

Poured as is over grilled meats, leftover gazpacho is refreshing, light and delicious.
