Gazpacho
Reviews:
August 29, 2008

This is a lovely base recipe which benefits from a few adjustments: -Save yourself some work: you can chop the vegetables (except the garlic) fairly coarsely, since they're all going in the blender/food processor anyway. -Blanch the tomatoes (it's quite easy) and remove their skins before chopping them into the mixture. Otherwise, your guests will find themselves picking bits of tomato skin out from between their teeth. -Seed the cucumbers before chopping -Saute the garlic in olive oil for about a minute, and add both garlic and oil to the mixture. (I dislike using raw garlic in anything, because it tends to add an unpleasant bite even in minute quantities) -Cut sugar down to 1/2 tsp -Substitute extra fresh tomatoes for 1 cup of the tomato juice -Skip tarragon -Skip green onions For garnish: -Minced red bell pepper -Fresh parsley -Chopped hard-boiled egg (very practical of the folks in Andalucia to add protein) On the side: We had some leftover polenta, which I sprinkled with shaved parmesan and served with the gazpacho instead of the usual crusty bread + ham. Delicious!
