Soup, Spanish

Chickpea gazpacho

I found a recipe for chickpea gazpacho on Kung Markatta’s website ( and thought it sounded very exotic! It was lucky that my love for adventure overcame my doubts that it would be tasty, because this was really a taste experience! Since all the ingredients are raw each ingredient in the soup contributes with a lot of flavor, so it becomes a very tasteful mix of many strong and good tastes! Do not be tempted to heat it because it will take away many of the flavors. Also, I should mention that it is extremely easy to prepare! Here is my version of the recipe:

Serves 4

400 g cooked chickpeas (drained weight)
1 onion, coarsely chopped
200 g white bread without edges, roughly chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 dl olive oil
5 dl water
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp herb salt
0.5 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp ground cumin

Blend all ingredients in a food processor or a blender into a smooth soup. Serve it cold with a good bread!
