Words & Brush Recipe Corner: Gazpacho Taste Of Summer
1 kg cherry tomatoes* 3 cucumbers, roughly chopped 1 large red pepper, cut in chunks 1 green pepper (or another red pepper) 1/2 red onion, cut in chunks 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar OR lemon juice 2 teaspoons crushed garlic 2 tablespoons olive oil Generous sprinkle chili flakes/Sriracha 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves ** Maldon salt to taste Coarse pepper to taste
* Or 8 very ripe red tomatoes plus 2 to 3 tablespoons of tomato paste for added flavor. Cherry tomatoes are sweeter though and don't need chopping.
** Basil can be replaced with 1/2 - 1 teaspoon each cumin and smoked paprika for a more traditionally Spanish taste but I love the freshness of basil.
GARNISH: Fresh basil leaves, halved cherry tomatoes, cucumbers peeled into ribbons and rolled, drizzle of olive oil, pistachios, coarse pepper
1: Blend/process soup ingredients together till very smooth - if it doesn't all fit into your blender then blend some of ingredients and then add remaining once there is more space - and refrigerate for at least 3 hours till very cold.
2: Garnish with the suggested toppings and serve in ice-cold bowls. Feel free to add tomato juice ice-cubes for added chill.
