Portuguese gazpacho recipe - with canned sardines!

Summer comes with light dishes and fresh crisp wines. What does that mean for big soup eaters like the Portuguese? It means we had to find a way of updating that cosy feeling of eating a warm cup of soup in the winter into that a fresher summer breeze. Introducing gazpacho!

What is gazpacho?

Gazpacho is a delicious cold summer soup from the Iberian Peninsula. Both the Portuguese and the Spanish make the dish with the same ingredients but cook it in a completely different way! While in Spain they prefer a creamy version of gazpacho, ours is an icy broth of chopped bites.



Today I thought about sharing a recipe I recently tried at home, which is a gazpacho with the better part of the two worlds, combined with a Portuguese classic: canned sardines.

Let’s start with the prep: roughly chop some tomatoes, cucumbers, green bell peppers, an onion and a garlic clove and put them on a blender and blend until they’re a creamy lush soup. Go back to the chopping board and grab the same ingredients but this time, slice and chop each one as finely as possible. Now season this mix with salt, black pepper and extra virgin olive oil.
