    OK, so I can't ever seem to come up with a good gazpacho.

    A lot of recipes call for canned tomato juice. It does make the soup look redder. But it tastes like CANNED tomato juice.

    I like a nice soupy gazpacho, and I want it all fresh. But when I make it, it is too thick. it doesn't have enough flavor, the color is too light, and it is frothy. Frothy soup. YUK!

    Any suggestions for a good recipe?

    Chop up tomato into tiny bits, mash but do not puree the ripe avocado. Add small pieces of onion, and a TINY touch of jalapeno sauce. This for my tastes, some like it fiery.

    I'll give it a try. I'll try them all.

    Some I've had has had zucchini, but I've never used it in mine. I don't like it fiery either. But I do like it with a little heat!

    Do you have a Vita-Mix? It's an awesome tool if you like healthy food....
