We had our doubts about putting this gazpacho through a strainer to achieve the final results, but we were absolutely delighted with the super-smooth, drinkable juice we ended up with. The perfect veggie complement to a high-protein lunch. Now, if you don't want to strain the veggies, you still win because a more fibrous cold soup you can eat with a spoon will treat your digestion as well as taste buds. Prepare to be refreshed.



  1. Combine tomatoes, pepper, cucumber, onion and garlic in a blender. Blend at high speed until very smooth, at least 2 minutes, pausing occasionally to scrape down the sides with a spatula.

  2. With the blender running, add the vinegar and 2 teaspoons salt. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil. The mixture will become smooth, like a dressing.

  3. Strain the mixture through a strainer, pushing all the liquid through with a spatula. Discard the solids. Transfer to a large container and chill until very cold, at least 6 hours.

  4. Before serving, adjust the seasonings with salt and vinegar. If soup is very thick, stir in a few tablespoons cold water. Serve in pre-chilled bowls or glasses. Divide 1 teaspoon olive oil evenly over the top of servings.

It’s the Spanish way to use lots of olive oil when making Gazpacho. You can easily cut some of the calories by using less if desired.

This gazpacho recipe instructs you to strain the liquid and discard the veggie solids for a smoother finish. You can skip this step for a more classically fibrous soup. It’s honestly better for you to eat all the fibers, so feel free not to strain for a more textured soup. The flavor will be the same. 

That said, this soup when prepared as instructed, straining out the solids, is phenomenal as a ‘juice’ drink alongside a high-protein meal. Refreshing and flavorful.
