Cherry Gazpacho ~ Healthy Soup Recipe ~ Savory Simple

I’m nervous, you guys. I’m kind of an introvert and have never been very good at public speaking. However, several months ago I enthusiastically agreed to do a cooking demo at the local farmer’s market. Suddenly that demo is a week away. Eek. 

Cherry Gazpacho ~ Healthy Soup Recipe ~ Savory Simple

I decided I should make something that was easy and preferably didn’t involve any actual cooking. Gazpacho seemed like a perfect way to showcase market ingredients while being able to banter with people and answer questions. After a few experiments, I have my perfect recipe!

I had one word in mind while developing this recipe (NO, not “fear”). Refreshing. I wanted this chilled soup to be a refreshing summer snack or appetizer. As I experimented with more traditional gazpacho ingredients I ran into issues. Cucumbers, basil, bell peppers, vinegar and bread resulted in muddled flavors that fought with the natural lightness of the cherries. So I went back to the drawing board. Orange juice to enhance the cherries, lemon juice for a less acidic kick and shallots for a milder onion flavor.  Mint instead of basil because it’s incredible with cherries. The results were exactly what I was seeking- a light, refreshing, sweet and savory chilled soup.  I think you’ll like it.

  • http://www.grubarazzi.com Grubarazzi

    Wow! This sounds really amazing and refreshing. I’m searching for a gazpacho recipe that is a bit different for a tapas party I am throwing in a couple of weeks. How do you think this would be with a little bit of heat…maybe serrano peppers? Too weird?

    • https://plus.google.com/u/0/116899699259024089659/posts Jennifer Farley

      Not weird at all! I almost threw in a serrano pepper!

    This looks really interesting and a great use of seasonal ingredients. Eager to give this a try. I’m a fellow DC area food blogger and have also agreed to do a food demo in July at the U/14th St. Market. I also hate public speaking, but it’s definitely easier when it’s something you are passionate about. I’m sure you’ll do great. Good luck.

  • Leah

    can’t wait to try this soup out :)

  • http://www.shepaused4thought.com Cathy @ She Paused 4 Thought

    I have had strawberry Gazpacho, but never cherry. I can’t wait to try this.

  • http://www.prettykittenskitchen.com/ Kristyn

    Holy yum! Can’t wait to try your cherry gazpacho.
    I would probably use the ipad most to entertain my toddler, but I already steal my husband’s for use in the kitchen. And to think I thought they were the most ridiculous gadget ever when they first came out…

  • Christina

    I would love to be able to keep up with reading the blogs I like when I’m on the road. I go into withdrawal without them.

  • http://theviewfromthegreatisland.blogspot.com/ Sue/the view from great island

    Wow, a fabulous giveaway and an even more fabulous gazpacho. I collect gazpacho recipes like I collect salsas, and this one is completely new to me, thanks! Your demo will be a hit!

  • http://www.beesweetsurrender.wordpress.com Becca

    Netflix would definitely be the most used app on this ipad if I could win one! I also travel a lot for work, so it would be super convenient while on the road!

  • Lizzie

    Cherry Gazpacho … who knew? Love chilled soups, know how good mint is with cherries (try using chocolate mint with cherries if you want to swoon out), loved the idea of the orange juice. Shallots & garlic make it sound particularly savory & authentic. This is going to make its Idaho debut very VERY soon.

  • http://hyethymecafe.blogspot.com/ Chris at Hye Thyme Cafe

    I would love to have the iPad in the kitchen to take notes while developing recipes or to follow recipes, etc., but the first thing I would do is find the games my sister keeps having me play on hers that I can’t play when I leave because I don’t have an iPad LOL. This is the first time I’ve seen a fruit version of Gazpacho. It sounds very interesting, and I’m sure you’ll do great at the demo! Just have FUN with it!!

  • Hannah

    I would probably watch movies in bed :}

  • http://organicglory.wordpress.com Amanda

    This sounds awesome!!

    Well, the first thing I’d do with that iPad would be to save the cherry gazpacho recipe AND photo in a prominent place, because I just like looking at it and thinking about it. Tomorrow, I’m gonna get me some cherries and try it. Because I have that cherry pitter we got last year at Eat, Write, Retreat! Bravo, and hope you have a blast at the farmer’s market – you’ll be a star.

    Oh my gosh, definitely for cooking! I don’t bring my laptop in the kitchen, instead I read recipes off of my iPhone which is a huge pain! It would also be nice to have this for taking on trip so I don’t have to lug around my laptop and big laptop bag! AND, it would be great to use the Kindle app to read book! Oh, the possibilities!

    Good luck with the demo! I’m sure this recipe will be a hit. If I were to win the iPad, I would probably spend most of my time on it reading blogs and pinning recipes!

    I just had my wisdom teeth removed and this soup looks sooooo good to me right now! I can’t tell you how sick I am of mashed potatoes, yogurt and applesauce! :D I am a mother of two, so I have a feeling that an ipad would be used for “kid stuff” in this house!
