    Raspberry Gazpacho

    A quick trip through the blender serves to mingle a riot of fresh flavours, which is why the cold soup known as gazpacho is always a delicious way to beat the heat. This riff on the Spanish soup includes raspberries for a touch of sweetness, while the chunky topping adds contrasting texture.

    Tip

    Slowly pouring the oil into the soup at the end allows for better emulsion for a more luscious mouth feel.
