I disagree.

Gazpacho is a cold, uncooked soup from the south of Spain. Recipes vary. Many do not contain bread or cream!

Sorry, but you are wrong about this.

Andy M is right. Gazpacho is an uncooked Spanish soup. It has nothing to do with Italy.

It traditionally contains bread, sherry vinegar, olive oil but no cream.

Also, you say it contains onions, garlic, vinegar and oil yet your "recipe" does not include them. ANd your instructions refers to ingredients not listed in the recipe. This is not very helpful, IMO.

With the addition of cream to the cooked veggies, it sounds more like a Cream of Tomato soup to me.

Alright Andy. Would you be so kind as to provide me with different versions of gazpacho. I have my cooking club coming over next week and we're cooking Spanish paella and flan. I'd like to have a nice appetizer for them. Would you do gazpacho or another appetizer while we cook the paella? Thanks.

Dina, I've made gazpacho a couple of times but don't consider myself an expert at all. There are others who know this topic better than I. I hope they will jump in and help.

Gazpacho might be a nice light app to go with the paella.
