Let’s call this the standard version of the creamy peach gazpacho with almonds. Now you can make some variations if you want. If you like it hot, you may consider to add some cayenne pepper or a bit of spicy chili pepper. then it is cool and hot at the same time! Less spicy but also tasty is garlic. You can cook it with the carrot and the ginger or add it raw in the blender.
Of course all of you know gazpacho as the cold tomato soup from Spain. It is very healthy and spiced with lots of vegetables and spices. Its origins are not completely clear, but presumably shepherds in Spain made it already more than 2000 years ago. It could be of Roman or Moorish origin.
Gazpacho has not always been red. And it doesn’t need to be red. This recipe is also a non red variant. The tomatoes started only to be a standard ingredient for gazpacho in the 19th century. In those times people also didn’t have a blender. They used to crush the vegetables and spices in a mortar. By using a blender you add a lot more air under the gazpacho. This will make it more creamy. If you don’t want that, you should use a mortar in the classical way.
