Hi Tasty25ers! Happy “Foodie Friday” to everyone, and we hope this article finds you well. We’ve got an amazing  Spinach Cream Gazpacho recipe for you today, sent in by Anna Flores of Córdoba, Argentina! Gazpacho is generally a cold, tomato-based, raw vegetable soup that is widely consumed in Spanish cuisine; but Anna says that her version is much healthier, and just as tasty! Gazpacho is mostly consumed during the spring & summer months because of its refreshing quality and chilled serving temperature, and we hope that you’ll try out this healthy & delicious recipe.
