Sweet Corn & Basil Gazpacho

Sweet Corn & Basil Summer Gazpacho

Gazpacho. Sounds complicated, right? Well, it’s not.

In fact, it’s so ridiculously easy that it should be called…Eazpacho.

I’m so embarrassing.  I won’t blame you if you decide to delete me from your favorites or feed or however you find yourself reading my random annoyingness.

But I digress.

Gazpacho! Have you heard of it? Ever tried it?

Sweet Corn & Basil Summer Gazpacho

I hadn’t until my little sister who spent a summer studying abroad in Spain, where apparently Gazpacho drips from the faucets, suggested I give it a try. When she first mentioned it, my mind immediately went to shrimp, which I am not a fan of…at all.

I was a restaurant food runner for a few years in high school (before being promoted to server status for the next five, lucky me) and I had to peel and devein shrimp on my downtime.

GAG.

Luckily I realized that I was actually mistaking it with ceviche.

Gazpacho, on the other hand, is a chilled soup that’s typically vegetarian and is made from raw tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, onion and garlic {and sometimes stale bread}. It takes barely any time to put together and the fact that it’s served cold makes it a refreshing option that’s perfect for summertime.
