  • 6 ripe tomatoes, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and roughly chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 small red onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups tomato juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley, cilantro, or basil) for garnish


Step 1 – Prepare the vegetables:

Start by washing and roughly chopping the tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, and red onion. Mince the garlic cloves.

Step 2 – Blend the ingredients:

In a blender or food processor, combine the tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, red onion, and garlic. Blend until the mixture is smooth. Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to do this in batches.

Step 3 – Mix the Gazpacho:

Transfer the blended vegetable mixture to a large bowl. Stir in the tomato juice, extra-virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, cumin, and smoked paprika (if using). Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

Step 4 – Chill the Gazpacho:

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until the Gazpacho is thoroughly chilled. This allows the flavours to meld together.

Step 5 – Serve:

Before serving, give the Gazpacho a good stir. Ladle it into bowls or cups. Garnish with fresh herbs such as parsley, cilantro, or basil for added flavour and a pop of colour.
