    Eating Seasonally:
    Tomato Gazpacho
    Adapted from Glorious Soups for Entertaining by Colette Gouvion and Arlette Sirot
    20100824-dt-alice-waters-gazpacho
    Gazpacho is refreshing, rich in vitamins, and a delicious and easy way to enjoy summer's bounty!

    Ingredients (Serves 4-5):
    • 4 large tomatoes
    • 1 bell pepper (red or orange)
    • 1 cucumber
    • 2 garlic cloves
    • 1 small onion
    • 1/4 cup virgin olive oil
    • Salt
    Directions:
    Blanch the tomatoes by dipping them into boiling water for 30-60 seconds, until the skins start to wrinkle. Dip the tomatoes in cold water, and slip the skins off.

    Halve, seed (if desired), and dice the tomatoes. Wash, dry, and seed the pepper, then cut it into small chunks. Peel the cucumber (if desired), half lengthwise to remove the seeds (if desired), and thinly slice. Peel the garlic and onion and slice.

    Put all these vegetables into the blender or food processor, and add 1/4 cup oil and some salt. Puree until you obtain a smooth consistency. Pour into a serving bowl and refrigerate.

    Serve chilled, alongside a crusty bread with pesto spread. Garnish the soup with cherry tomatoes, chunks of cucumber, chopped green onions, or fresh herbs like parsley, chives, basil, or cilantro.
