Easy Recipe – Gazpacho

It’s time to share my recipe again since talking so much on art and cultures.


Here I would like to introduce my secrete recipe of Gazpacho – a soup originating from Andalusia of Spain.  It’s a very low cost, high in nutrient and yummy recipe! Sometimes I have left little vegetables like half of cucumber, bell peppers, then you can just buy some more tomatoes to make Gazpacho. 

Gazpacho serves chill so it is ideal for summer.   


Ingredients:  (for 2 pax)

 

8 large tomatoes

1/2 cucumber

1 clove of Garlic

1/4 of green bell pepper

1/4 onion

1/2 slide of day-old white bread


Seasoning:

Olive oil (Extra Virgin)

Salt

Black pepper

Basilic leaves / mint for garnish


Luxury version: add Spanish ham on top (optional)


Cooking Method:

1) Cut a cross on the bottom of tomatoes and boil under hot water, to remove the skin of tomatoes

2) Cool down the tomatoes in a room temperature

3) Wash all vegetables and cut into cubes , leave some vegetables cubes for garnish

4) Use a blender to blend all tomatoes, bread and vegetables, seasoning with salt and pepper

5) garnish with mint/basilic leaves or Spanish ham for topping , with extra virgin olive oil.

6) Lastly, chill them before serving


Volia! Let’s try ! Really good for summer and it can keep up to 2 days.
