Notes

Top tips to make perfect watermelon gazpacho

  • You will get the best-tasting gazpacho soup if you look for the sweetest watermelon, the ripest tomatoes and the freshest cucumber, bell pepper, and onion. As gazpacho soup is a raw vegetable soup, freshness is crucial. 
  • You will get completely matured flavors if you chill the soup in the fridge overnight. However, we did try it after chilling it for 2 hours, and the soup was already lovely and refreshing. 

Garnishes

  • Fresh diced vegetables (either as a topping or as a simple side salad)
  • Savory french toast (our Eggless Vegan French Toast recipe)
  • Vegan cheese toast (you can see it in the video)
  • Bread with olive oil and garlic paste
  • Vegan bacon bits
