It’s Summer, and what a way to start it off and beat the heat! I haven’t made gazpacho in a couple of years, so when I took to the internet to find that stand out recipe, I couldn’t find anything that was quick and what I was looking for. I grabbed a few things from the produce section of my local grocery store, and with a blender, bam! This is a simple cold soup, bursting with flavor!
Recipe: Yields 8 cups
I chopped everything in big chunks and then added in the liquids, including the tomato paste.
-1 orange pepper
-1 small red onion
-6 roma tomates (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
-2 small cucumbers
-1/2 cup fresh cilantro
-3 cloves of garlic (might want to add 2 and go from there)
-2 tbs of tomato paste
-3 cups of tomato juice
-1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Once you have chopped down the seasoning and veggies in the blender, add the liquids, pureeing to a consistency that you like. I divided up my soup in large mason jars and placed them in the fridge. I had my first bowl in 2-3 hours- ENJOY!
