With all this Mediterranean weather we've been enjoying lately I decided to try something cooler for dinner today.

Cold soup can sound a bit meh, but trust me or rather, trust Keith Floyd (My all time favourite telly-chef) who showed this recipe years ago.

Lots of gazpacho recipes use breadcrumbs (most of them, in fact), but not Floydey's. This makes it the perfect paleo hot weather food.

1 cucumber
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 large onion
3 sticks of celery
2 cans tomatoes
A handful of basil
A handful of mint
A handful or two of ice

Throw everything into a blender and whiz up until its a lovely smooth consistency. (Pulse it if you want it to be lumpier).
Add salt and pepper to taste, dribble a little extra virgin olive oil on top and you are good to go.

Serve with finely chopped parsley, basil, chilli, garlic and shallots.
