  • 4 medium or 3 large heirloom tomatoes (approximately 2 pounds), cored and coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium red peppers, stemmed, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 large seedless cucumber, unpeeled, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion coarsely chopped (1/3 - 1/2 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups tomato juice (vegetable juice may be substituted)
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
  • Optional garnishes: diced avocado, sliced scallions, a small dollop of sour cream or crème fraîche (omit for vegan soup)


  • Add the tomatoes to a food processor and pulse or puree until the desired texture is reached. Pour into a large bowl. Repeat the same process with the red peppers and cucumber, adding each ingredient to the same bowl.
  • Add the red onion and garlic to the food processor and pulse several times. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and pulse again. If a thinner/smoother texture is desired, pour some of the olive oil into the food processor while the machine is running, which will create a puree. Scrape the contents into the bowl with the other vegetables.
  • Stir in the remaining olive oil, tomato juice, and white wine vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight so the flavors have a chance to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings again if needed.
  • Serve chilled. Gazpacho keeps in the refrigerator for up to one week, but will taste best within 4-5 days.


Other tomato varieties may be substituted if heirlooms are unavailable. You can use a blender instead of a food processor if preferred.
