ROASTED PEACH GAZPACHO RECIPE

ROASTED PEACH GAZPACHO RECIPE

South Africa’s summertime Festive Season is one of the country’s many advantages. Days spent by the pool or on the beach are exciting and full with activities, and although this is wonderful, it may leave you hungry and a bit dehydrated. Gazpacho might well be the solution to your sunny day festivities. A new take on the traditional Spanish and Portuguese cold soup made from veggies, this gazpacho has toasted peaches.

ROASTED PEACH GAZPACHO TIPS

While raw vegetables and fruit are often used to make gazpacho, roasting the peaches adds a delicious caramelised fruit flavour and brings out their natural sweetness. The chilli enhances the dish’s flavour without making it too hot to enjoy on a hot summer day. You may whip up a large quantity to take with you on beach trips or to the pool. This beverage may be enjoyed at any time of the day; just add ice if you want a chilled version.

Refreshing snacks are a need during the hot summer months. Have the entire family try this roasted peach gazpacho smoothie.
