This is nothing new. I have made gazpacho for several years, it always taste nice but somehow I felt it wasnt as good as the ones I tried back home. And to be honest, I never bothered looking for a video…. I followed kind of the recipe from Simone Ortega.

But yesterday, I did my best by far!!! The difference, just three super ripe and juicy tomatoes!!! They filled nearly half of my jar of the blending machine with juice once I crashed them a bit… So this is just a note for the next time. Buy good tomates, they are a bit more expensive, but they are worth every f* penny Mazinger.


  • 3 super ripe/juicy tomatoes. Peel them
  • 1 red pepper, try to peel it
  • 1 green pepper, try to peel it
  • 1 onion
  • 1 cucumber, peel it.
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic.
  • salt + pepper
  • 1-2 tbs of vinegar
  • 100ml olive oil (aprox)
  • a bit of paprika
  • splash of water (optional- not necessary with good tomatoes)


  • Put everything in the blender. Mix until everything is smooth.
  • Taste it !!! Needs a bit more salt? olive oil?
  • Put the jar in the fridge.

Enjoy it chilled! (or add an ice cube)
