Tomato Gazpacho, where did this cold soup originate from?
According to Wikipedia, there are a number of theories of its origin. Including as a soup of bread, olive oil, water and garlic that arrived in Spain and Portugal with the Romans and also with the addition of vinegar. Once in Spain, it became a part of Andalusian cuisine, particularly Córdoba and Seville, using stale bread, garlic, olive oil, salt, and vinegar, similar to ajoblanco.
During the 19th century, the red gazpacho evolved when tomatoes were added to the ingredients. This version was spread internationally.
There are many modern variations of gazpacho, often in different colors and omitting the tomatoes and bread in favor of avocados, cucumbers, parsley, watermelon, grapes, meat stock, seafood, and other ingredients.
This simple, fresh and cheap tomato gazpacho is the perfect starter for your summer dinner parties. It is the simplest form of the cool soup.
