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 a little time, I had been surfing on the web the other day. On the lookout for new, challenging thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never tasted before, to delight my loved ones with. Hunting for a long time but couldn’t come across lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this tempting and easy treat by chance. It seemed so delicious on its pic, that required quick action.
It had been not so difficult to imagine just how it is created, how it tastes and just how much my hubby will probably enjoy it. Mind you, it is quite simple to keep happy him when it comes to puddings. Anyway, I went to the page: Suncakemom and used the detailed instuctions that were accompanied by superb pics of the task. It just makes life rather easy. I could imagine that it’s a slight hassle to take photos in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you most often have sticky hands thus i really appreciate the hard work she placed in to build this post .
With that in mind I am encouraged to present my personal recipes in the same way. Appreciate your the idea.
I was tweaking the initial formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to tell you it was an incredible success. They loved the flavor, the thickness and loved having a treat such as this during a hectic week. They ultimately asked for more, more and more. Thus next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna double the volume .
This Gazpacho Recipe is 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
