A “Souper” End of Summer Meal: Almond Gazpacho

Posted on : August 17th, 2020

Three digits in the valley today, sigh. But soup is still on the menu. Heirloom tomatoes are now in season and I can’t stop buying or eating them! When they get too soft to slice, I make gazpacho, the Spanish cold soup that’s like a salad in the blender, but better. The addition of ground Maisie Jane’s Natural Almonds to this savory dish makes it protein rich and vegan.


Served chilled with a slice or two of crusty bread, you’ve got a lovely, light, seasonal meal. Try this ingenious gazpacho recipe from our friends at The Almond Board of California. Tomatoes, cukes and red peppers are all in abundance now, making this dish a great way to eat in season. 

Zesty Garden Almond Gazpacho



  • Garnish your gazpacho with a little chopped cilantro and avocado.
  •   Flavor with a bit of lime juice and cumin powder.
  •   Leave out the serrano pepper and hot sauce if you like it less spicy, or substitute a dash of cayenne.
  •   Substitute Maisie Jane’s Organic Crunchy Almond Butter for the ground almonds.
  • Make a green gazpacho with tomatillos in place of of red tomatoes and tomato juice, scallions in lieu of onions, and a zucchini squash.

Prepare a day ahead to allow the flavors to meld; gazpacho is souper-super-great served chilled. Mmmm.
