Happy Memorial Day! Happy Meatless Monday! Sarah and I are so glad you joined us today! I know I complained about our freezing raining weather most of April and May but just like typical DC weather we headed right into summer with a few days of upper 80’s. When it gets that hot I am looking for something refreshing the light to eat. I found these gorgeous yellow tomatoes and decided to do a twist on a typical Gazpacho and came up with this delicious Sweet Summer Yellow Tomato, Corn & Pepper Gazpacho.
This soup requires no cooking at all and can be whipped up (literally in the blender) in just a few minutes, chilled and enjoyed for lunch or dinner. The sweet corn and sweet yellow peppers give it a delicious refreshing taste not to mention all the vitamins and good for you fiber.
Some people prefer a very smooth gazpacho soup and other like to enjoy it with a little texture. I used my Ninja blender which is amazing by the way and left a little texture to my soup. I like to pulse it until it reaches the desired texture instead of blending full on. (affiliate link)
