Loved this as the only gazpacho recipe I have found that does not use olive oil - vital as trying to lose weight!

Chilli, I would suggest, is purely optional

lovely! I only used half a chilli as i'm not a huge spice fan, but really enjoyed this :) no idea if it's authentic tasting or not though as I've never had it before

I´m sorry to say than in Spain, specially in the South when this recipe comes from, we do not add chilli or lima juice. Too much British-style oriented. I recommend to add green pepper, fresh cucumber and of course, a large spoon of virgin olive oil (basic for any Spanish recipe).

I liked it! It's not quite as good as the ones that we've had in restaurants and those that we have bought in France but it wasn't bad at all! I will definitely make again and will make sure that I cool it properly first!

Now I can come back and comment. Not traditional at all I'm sure but it tastes nice. I add a chuck of cucumber to it (lightens the flavour, without it, it's a bit much) and a touch of olive oil. Good lunchtime dish to take to work and seriously healthy.

A bit more hot and sour and intense than any gazpacho I've eaten in Spain, but quick, easy and in its own intense way quite pleasant.

It should be stressed that with chilli and lime in it, this is NOT a Spanish gazpacho but a Mexican one. I have been consuming gazpacho in Spain for over fifty years and have never had it with chilli (or Tabasco) in it!

I think it does need the chilli, just use a mild one or use some dried chilli flakes which help make it less spicy. I like using the passata because making gazpacho with fresh tomatoes often ends up looking pink whereas this recipe always ends up nice and red.

I also add cucumber which I think makes it taste fresher and adds to the veg count and a teaspoon drizzle of olive oil on top. I'm not totally convinced though that the original recipe really contains 4 out of the 5 a day though!

Lovely soup to take to work for lunch. Took the red chilli out and added cucumber instead. I aslo added some olive oil.

This was lovely although I did change it a bit.

I left out the lime and vinegar and added half a can of green lentils and then heated it up.

I will never buy tomato soup again, as this is so quick and easy to make and yummy to eat.

Tried this recipe but far too much red chilli for our liking
