Strawberries add a fresh, fruity twist to this classic chilled soup. If you wish, choose your favorite herb to sprinkle on as a garnish and to boost the flavor. We recommend chives, basil, or thyme leaves, but many fresh herbs will complement this Strawberry Gazpacho.


  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks (1½ cups)
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into chunks (1 cup)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into chunks (1 cup)
  • ½ of an onion, chopped (¼ cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ to ½ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional garnishes: sliced fresh strawberries, cucumber slices, and fresh herbs


  1. In a food processor or blender combine the first six ingredients (through garlic). Cover and process 3 to 4 minutes or until very smooth. Add lemon juice, vinegar, and enough broth to achieve the desired consistency. Season with salt and black pepper.
  2. If desired, garnish servings with sliced strawberries, cucumber slices, and/or fresh herbs.

Made this tonight with my dinner after seeing it in a Forks over knives email. It was such a delightful garden party in my mouth. All of the flavors come together to create a satisfying summer treat.

This is nice gazpacho, refreshing and drinkable version. It has the usual gazpacho flavor with strawberries giving it a tartness. Mine was made with a VitaMix and it was necessary to add the broth before blending. It was so much easier than chopping veggies for a chunky version.
