Frequently asked questions about gazpacho

What do I need to make gazpacho?

You’ll only need some fresh veggies (fresh tomatoes, cucumber, green pepper and garlic), sherry vinegar and extra virgin olive oil along with salt for seasoning and a blender.

Can I use fruit when making gazpacho?

Yes! Gazpacho is a flexible dish, so you can actually get creative. If you want to take the safe road, just switch some of the tomatoes for some sort of summer fruit, like watermelon, strawberries or cherries. Bellow I’ll show how much fruit I use for the most popular gazpacho variations with fruit. You won’t be able to pinpoint what fruit it is, but you will love the flavor.Ingredients for fruit gazpacho

Do I need to peel the veggies or strain the cold soup?

You don’t have to strain gazpacho and I’ve never done it; too much work and in my opinion, a waste of good fibers!
However, I peel the cucumber to make it easier to digest. And the garlic clove needs peeling.
The trick to get a smooth gazpacho (if you like it creamy like me; some people prefer it chunky) lies in blending thoughtfully.

What’s the best blender to make gazpacho?

To make a big batch of this chilled soup, it’s better to use a good, big blender: it saves lots of time and it gets the smoothest gazpacho. I don’t have a fancy blender (yet), but my mother has a Thermomix, and it’s a dream to make gazpacho for the whole family with such a potent and big blender.
But when making just one serving, even an electric hand mixer will do a great job breaking down chunks into a smoothie with no problem (btw. did you know gazpacho was originally made with mortar and pestle?).Gazpacho with blender vs. mixer

How to make a single serving of gazpacho

Looking for a quick and healthy snack just for yourself?
I get it: often I’m eating lunch alone or with my toddlers, who don’t enjoy the raw garlic (sometimes also onion) in gazpacho.
Gazpacho is perfect for these situations because you can make as many servings as your stomach desires!
And the best part: this refreshing soup is super easy to whip together when you only need one glass instead of a whole batch.
If you make more though, don’t worry: this veggie soup stays good for 2-3 days in your fridge – if it lasts that long before being devoured by hungry tummies.

Here are the exact quantities I use to make my favorite cold soup.
This ratio has always worked great for me, but you can always experiment and adapt this drinkable salad recipe to your taste or to what you have in the kitchen.
Gazpacho also tastes extremely well with some fruits; check how to make 1-person-servings of some refreshing variations (like with cherry) bellow.

Cherry gazpacho – one serving recipe

Steps to make cherry gazpacho

This is an amazing refreshing dish with a slightly sweet flavor.
You can make it with fresh or frozen cherries. And if you use frozen ones, then you don’t have to chill the mixture before serving it because the cherries cool your gazpacho soup.
Follow the same steps than when making regular gazpacho, just switching some of the ripe tomato for pitted cherries.
The only difference between the regular one and fruit variations like this one is that instead of green bell pepper, red pepper will work well too.

These are the ingredients for a serving of cherry gazpacho:

Ingredients for cherry gazpacho
  • 2 middle-sized roma tomatoes or 1 heirloom tomato – 160 gr. or 5-6 oz.
  • A handful pitted cherries – 60 gr. or 2 oz.
  • Red bell pepper – 30 gr. or 1 oz.
  • Cucumber – 30 gr. or 1 oz.
  • 1/2 garlic clove or a very small one
  • Wine vinegar- 1 teaspoon
  • A pinch of salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil – 2 teaspoons

Watermelon gazpacho – how to make a single serving

Juicy and sweet, watermelon is also a perfect fruit to add to gazpacho: it adds freshness and it’s very easy to blend with the other ingredients.
To make this invigorating soup, blend some cubes of seedless watermelon (after removing the rind) with the other chopped ingredients and serve cold.

You can see the recipe for 4 servings here or use these amounts to make one cup:

  • 2 middle sized tomatoes – roughly 150 gr. or 5 oz.
  • Watermelon without rind – 70 gr. or 2,5 oz.
  • Cucumber – 30 gr. or 1 oz.
  • Red bell pepper – 30 gr. or 1 oz.
  • 1/2 garlic clove or a very small one
  • Wine vinegar- 1 teaspoon
  • Some salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil – 2 teaspoons

I like my watermelon gazpacho quite sweet; if you’d prefer it to taste more traditional, try adding less watermelon and more tomatoes. Also, a touch of red onion will make this recipe pop!

Strawberry gazpacho – one glass recipe

Ingredients to make strawberry gazpacho for one person

I can’t decide my favorite type of gazpacho; every single variation is simply too good. Gazpacho with fruits are very mild and this strawberry variant is no exception. As with other types of this refreshing dish, you just have to blend everything together.
Just remove the green leafy part (the stem) from your strawberry before blending all ingredients together.
Frozen strawberries also work great.
But no matter whether you use fresh or frozen ones, don’t use too many strawberries: we don’t want our gazpacho taste like a salty fruit smoothie!

For a glass of this summer day dream I recommend:

  • 3-4 tomatoes, depending in their size – 170 gr. or 6 oz.
  • 3-4 strawberries – 30 gr. or 3 oz.
  • Cucumber – 50 gr. or 1,7 oz.
  • Pepper – 30 gr. or 1 oz.
  • 1/2 garlic clove or a small one
  • Wine vinegar- 1 teaspoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil – 2 teaspoons

How did you enjoy these one-serving recipes? I hope you enjoy these quick-to-make, nutritious gazpachos as much as I do!
