Stir up a no-cook meal for your family on a hot summer day. Just spin the globe until your finger lands on Spain and think gazpacho. The season’s freshest tomatoes, cukes, peppers and onions come together in this satisfying and zesty cold Spanish soup.
Let your kids harvest some of the ingredients from your family garden, or choose them in peak condition at a farmers market. Teach your school-age children basic cutting and chopping techniques. They’ll have lots of practice with this recipe.
If you don’t mind turning on your oven for a few minutes, top off the soup with whimsical kid-made croutons in fun shapes. Serve it in the fanciest bowl that you use for special occasions.
