Gazpacho - Spanish Summer Soup
Fresh summer veggies + blender = delicious healthy meal that requires no cooking! Heart-shaped ice cube optional, but highly-recommended.
- 4-6 ripe tomatoes
- 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
- ½ cup water
- 1 green pepper (anaheim, bell or whatever you have on hand)
- 1 clove garlic (remove the green center for a more mild flavor)
- ½ or whole cucumber
- salt (to taste)
Chop tomatoes, green pepper, cucumber, and garlic into large chunks. Place chunks into blender.
Add EVOO and water to the blender. Put your earplugs in (optional, but highly recommended) and put the lid on the blender.
Blend on high speed until the gazpacho is pureed to a smooth consistency.
Taste the gazpacho, add salt to taste, blend again; repeat until savoriness is achieved.
Store gazpacho in the fridge for at least one hour. Serve cold in a chilled glass or mug and enjoy!
