How to make White Gazpacho Soup
The soup begins with a three cucumbers. Peel and dice cucumbers and place in a blender. Tip: You can use english cucumbers to help keep seeds at bay but regular cucumbers will work great too. The next ingredient is chicken broth. I use a box broth and will put the broth in the refrigerator to chill before making this soup. Since this is served cold, chilling your broth will cut down on soup chill time.
Add 3 cups sour cream, 3 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 garlic clove, peeled and pressed. You can use minced garlic in the jars as another option.
Turn on blender and let it mix together. Thats it! You and your guests will love this chilled soup.
How to Serve this Soup?
I served this soup in a cute summer bowl, but anything small in cup size will work. After pouring the soup in your bowl or cup, garnish with chopped green onions, diced cherry tomatoes and toasted sliced almonds. This soup really couldn’t be any easier… and boy is it delicious.
Hope you will try this recipe. Remember to keep it chilled before and after serving if you have leftovers. You can make this recipe ahead by one day, just stir well before serving. This recipe will make 6- 8 half cup servings, depending on size of cucumbers.
Here are some cute cups with plates you might like for serving this soup. I used a small brand new planter for serving my soup with out a drain hole. LOL.Print
