Gazpacho, Spain

┬┤The fuel of the people┬┤ - This Spanish cold soup (although you must never say in Spain that Gazpacho is a cold soup!) is a refreshing, energetic and healthy drink made of fresh tomatoes, garlic, cucumber, olive oil, Jerez vinegar, salt and water. Some people also add other vegetables: carrots, pepper or even some bread. Its origins are in Andalusia but nowadays is possible to find it in most of the supermarkets around the world. Cycling along EuroVelo 8, stop along the route and try a home made fresh gazpacho andaluz. Photo credit: Ignacio Palomo Duarte (flickr)
