Gazpacho is a cold soup that originated in Spain. There are many variations on it, but a tomato base is the most popular.
This delicious gazpacho recipe is a crowd-pleaser, and it’s loaded with healthy ingredients that will help put the pep back in your step too!
You will need:
3 cups tomato juice
4-5 fresh tomatoes
5 stalks celery
1 red pepper, seeded
2 cloves garlic (optional)
A few good dashes soy sauce
¼-⅓ cup unrefined, organic sunflower oil
½ dropperful coriander oil
Cilantro, to taste (optional)
Jalapeno pepper, to taste (optional)
Here’s how it’s done:
- Roughly chop all vegetables, cilantro and garlic and put them in a large bowl. Add liquids. Use an immersion blender to blend everything together. Blend to whatever consistency you like. If you like a chunkier gazpacho, you can chop the vegetables to the size you like by hand and then just add the liquids, no need to blend.
- Put it in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight. To speed up chilling time, set the bowl inside a larger bowl filled with ice and then put both in the fridge.
- Serve chilled. Garnish with a sprig of cilantro.
