Gazpacho

Gazpacho

A cold soup that's slightly sour and refreshing. Imagine you're drinking a salad!

Ingredients: 4-6 servings

Tomatoes
4 (medium)
Cucumber
1
Red bell peppers
1 (or 1/2)
Onion
1/4 (small)
Garlic
1/2 clove (small)
Baguette
10 cm
White wine vinegar
2 tablespoons
Olive oil
4 tablespoons
Water
100 ml
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
White pepper
a small amount

Steps

1. Peel the tomatoes and cucumber. Roughly chop up all the vegetables.
2. Mince the cucumber skin and keep them for the topping (to float on the soup).
3. Tear off the white parts of the baguette which you will use. Wet them with water and squeeze water out of them. (You will not use the crust for this recipe. Please enjoy them with some delicious butter.)
4. Mix all the ingredients except for the cucumber skin (Step 2) with a hand blender until smooth.
5. It might be difficult to mix at first, but don't worry. Try to aim for the tomatoes first, since they will give out some juice.
6. Chill well in the fridge (for best results, chill the serving dishes as well). Top with cucumber skins (Step 2) and drizzle on some olive oil if you'd like.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love gazpacho. I've been experimenting to find the perfect balance of ingredients to suit my taste. I've made them slightly sour to enjoy even when you've lost your appetite on a hot summer day.
