Vegan January! - Learn How to Make Watermelon Gazpacho

By: Kanch Porta Panjabi

What's better than a fresh slice of watermelon on warm afternoon? Watermelon Gazpacho of Course! Chef Kanch from Masalas and Olives shares her recipe for this fresh and delicious vegan gazpacho! 

Gazpacho – ‘the soup-salad of Spain’ dates back to when Spain was part of the Islamic world. Traditionally made with mortar and left over bread that is about a week old.

 When I first met the hubby one of the things he loved to make up was a big pot of tomato gazpacho, for me it was hard to understand why you would want to blend so many vegetables in one soup rather then a salad. The more I drank it, the more the flavors came into harmony to my pallet and now it’s a weekly staple at the table.

 The sweet fresh taste couple with its good nutritional content makes this soup-salad perfect for a summer bbq’s, kids parties, picnics and a whole lot more
