Sack off the carton stuff. This recipe is the business, and so, so refreshing.


Get some nice tomatoes.



  • Bread Roll - £0.30

  • Sherry Vinegar - £1.40

  • Garlic - £0.30

  • 1 Bunch of Spring Onions - £0.49

  • 1 Red Pepper - £0.50

  • 1 Green Pepper - £0.50

  • 1 Cucumber - £0.50

  • 14 Plum Tomatoes - £1.85

  • Total Cost - £5.84 - This covers absolutely everything. All we assume you have in your kitchen beforehand is SALT, PEPPER AND OLIVE OIL.


  1. Prep time. Peel 1 cucumber, half it, scoop out the seeds and slice it up.

  2. Remove the seeds from 1 red pepper and 1 green pepper, and chop into chunks. Chop 1 1⁄2 garlic cloves into slices. Slice up 3 spring onions. Tear up a bread roll.

  3. Throw all these ingredients into a large bowl along with your tomatoes. Add 3 1⁄2 tablespoons of sherry vinegar, 5 tablespoons of olive oil and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper.

  4. Get your hands stuck in and crush everything into a pulp. Once it is broken down, get the blender involved.

  5. Blend until smooth and ladle the gazpacho into a pouring jug.

  6. Serve with lots of ice, a drizzle of good olive oil and a bit of pepper. Enjoy.
