I did not think I liked a cold soup at all either! This was my first, and I really liked it! It tastes so fresh and healthy. Lots of veggies, and since you don’t have to cook anything, really easy. I wanted to use up all of the tomatoes , cucumbers and garlic from Matt’s haul. I had also bought too many peppers at the farmers market. So, I looked up a Barefoot Contessa Gazpacho soup recipe. (Copyright 1999 The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook) I thought it would use everything up, and if I didn’t like it, there is always GP! (I am sure he will be enjoying this later.) The recipe made quite a bit. Recipe as follows: 1 cucumber chopped, skin on. 2 red bell peppers,( I used cubanelle from the market) cored and seeded. 4 plum tomatoes , chopped. 1 red onion,chopped. 3 garlic cloves, minced. 3 cups tomato juice, 1/4 c white wine vinegar, 1/4 c good olive oil, 1/2 tbsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper. Put the veggies in a food processor separately. After each veggie is processed, combine them in a large bowl and add garlic, tomato juice,vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well and chill. I added a dollop of sour cream on top. Avocado slices would have been good also, but I didn’t have any. You might be surprised and really like this!
