What's the Difference Between Gazpacho & Tomato Bisque?

Good Questions

Q: I've always wanted to know what the difference is between a gazpacho and a regular tomato soup or bisque.

Is it just the same thing but served cold?

Editor: Heather, our impression of gazpacho is that it involves a lot more fresh vegetables than a simple tomato bisque. It is also often made with bread and water added, while tomato bisque has a shorter list of ingredients, usually calls for chicken or vegetable broth, and is finished off with cream.

Here's a great recipe for gazpacho from guest blogger Monika:
