Chilled Shrimp Gazpacho

  • Prep: 15 minutes
  • Serves: 6

Ingredients & Directions

  • 2 cups Swanson® Aseptic Vegetable Broth
  • 3/4 cup V8® V8® Original
  • 1 slice Pepperidge Farm® Farmhouse™ Hearty White Bread, torn into pieces
  • 4 cups grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup diced cantaloupe or Cavaillon melon
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 fresh basil leaves, cut into very thin strips
  • 1/2 pound cooked small shrimp
  • 6 additional fresh basil leaves (optional)

Place the broth, juice and bread in a blender. Cover and blend until the mixture forms a paste. Pour into a large bowl.

Stir the tomatoes, cucumber, cantaloupe, vinegar and basil in the bowl and season to taste.

Place 1/2 of the broth mixture into a blender. Cover and pulse about 5 times for a partially blended mixture. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl. Repeat the blending process with the remaining broth mixture. Stir into the puréed mixture.

Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until the soup is cold.

Ladle 1 cup of the gazpacho into each of 6 chilled serving bowls. Top each serving of soup with about 2 shrimp and additional basil for garnish, if desired.
