Nothing is better to smooth our appetite on a hot summer day than a delicious cold gazpacho. Raw pureed vegetables brought together under the Spanish sun.
As I recently have some time, I had been searching on the internet last week. In search of new, challenging ideas, inspiring dishes that I have never tasted before, to impress my family with. Hunting for a while but couldn’t discover lots of interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this fabulous and simple treat simply by luck over Suncakemom. It looked so delightful on its image, it required prompt actions.
It absolutely was simple enough to imagine just how it’s made, its taste and how much my hubby will probably like it. Actually, it is rather simple to impress the guy when it comes to treats. Anyways, I got into the blog and followed the simple instuctions that were coupled with wonderful images of the procedure. It just makes life less difficult. I can imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to shoot pics in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may will often have gross hands thus i sincerely appreciate the time and energy she put in for making this post and recipe easily followed.
With that said I’m encouraged to present my own recipes in the same way. Appreciate your the thought.
I had been tweaking the initial mixture create it for the taste of my family. I can mention it turned out a terrific success. They prized the flavor, the overall look and loved having a delicacy like this during a hectic week. They basically wanted even more, a lot more. So the next occasion I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am likely to twin the amount .
This post is based on Gazpacho Soup Recipe from SunCakeMom
Wash all the vegetables and get everything ready to go.
Cut the vegetables up into pieces to make the blending process easier.
Optionally peel the tomatoes either by hand or blanching. Removing the peel will reduce the overall acidity of the finished dish.
Pure the tomatoes with a blender then add the rest of the vegetables and salt.
Blend the vegetables with the tomato.
If desired add some sort of bread and pure that as well. This step is totally optional. The bread is meant to thicken the sauce thus if we skip adding the bread we may skip adding water to the mixture.
Don’t forget to add the olive oil, vinegar and if we use bread then the water as well.
Traditionally the gazpacho should be pressed through some sort of sieve to get rid of the seeds but if we are short on time or just don’t want to suffer it through then skip this step.
The finished gazpacho should be kept in a cool place uncovered for a day allowing some of the liquid to evaporate and the flavors to come together but lacking that sort of place the fridge would do just as well.
Serve it cooled down to fridge temperature and try to avoid serving it with ice cubes for Spanish people. ;D
