Classic Gazpacho - vegan, gluten-free, and food-allergy friendly -

One of my favorite memories is having lunch in the summer with my stepmom. We would have cold gazpacho and talk about everything that was on our minds. 

I still love the fresh, spicy zing of this cold vegetable soup. After a quick trip to the farmers market, I can have lunch for days -- I make a double batch, so I don't eat it all up at once! 

If you think that a cold soup sounds weird, I ask you to give this one a chance. It's delicious and the perfect alternative to a salad on a hot day. Because it's naturally vegan, gluten-free and allergy friendly, it's a great option if you're having friends over for lunch, too.
