COOKBOOK: The Green Kitchen
A strawberry soup! Gazpacho means a soup in Spanish, ordinarily made from tomatoes and capsicums. This was different! This version was just oozing in fruit! Let’s add strawberries and watermelon and it will not only taste great but add ice and you have yourself a cool healthy drink that will provide you with many nutrients. Definitely one for the health-conscious!
