As the weather warms up, I end up turning on my oven less and less. Usually I like to have some fresh, no cook meals like salads, but cold soup also makes a great option. Gazpacho is a cold soup with usually a tomato base and sometimes has added bread blending in. Of course, I wanted to make a grain free version and found that I didn’t need to add any bread at all.
I love the flavors of a BLT and figured it would make a fresh summer soup. Before too long, tomatoes will be overflowing many of your gardens and this soup is a great option for using up all of those tomatoes. The only cooking involved is bacon and it’s never too hot to cook bacon!
