My daughter, Grace, made Gazpacho last weekend. It was her mission. Gazpacho is probably the last thing she would ever eat, which proved to be true. She never even tasted it.
Gazpacho is a tomato-based soup traditionally served cold, originating in the southern Spanish region of Andalucía. Gazpacho is widely consumed in Spanish cuisine, as well as in neighboring Portugal, where it is known as gaspacho.
1 English cucumber, halved and seeded, but not peeled
2 red bell peppers, cored and seeded
4 plum tomatoes
1 red onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
23 oz tomato juice (3 cups)
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 Tbs kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Roughly chop the cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, and red onions into 1-inch cubes. Put each vegetable separately into a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse until it is coarsely chopped. Do not over process!
After each vegetable is processed, combine them in a large bowl and add the garlic, tomato juice, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well and chill before serving. The longer gazpacho sits, the more the flavors develop.
