Let me start off by saying, I would normally NEVER make Gazpacho. It's just not a part of my weekly menu planning. But my book group had a party & the food theme was all RAW foods & I was asked to make this Gazpacho recipe.
I made it semi-unsure of it's tastiness. So, I understand if you are looking at this thinking, "Umm... no..." but I say give it a try. I'd never know how much I love it & now it's a go-to for a quick healthy lunch.
Ingredients (this pic is for a double recipe) & a good blender :
1 1/2 red bell peppers- seeded & cut
4+ Roma tomatoes
1/4 red onion (I used a little more than that)
3 cloves garlic
3 cups tomato juice
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 TB kosher salt
3/4 tsp black pepper (I added more b/c I love pepper)
I added an avocado to make it more creamy & I think this was the "piece de resistance" (basically made this soup the BOMB!)
Now this is where it gets complicated... put it all in your blender & blend ( I have a Cuisinart blender) . That's it. Done.
