Missing the Mediterranean 🏖 The weather in Geneva was great today – hot & sunny summer vibes. So I decided to make a Gazpacho soup for dinner. I’ve had this recipe written down in the cupboard for years and can’t remember which cookbook it’s from but it’s too delicious not to share. 😋 Ingredients: 1kg Fresh Tomatoes (or Passata) 1 Green or Red Bell Pepper Roasted Half a Large Cucumber Peeled A Couple of Slices of Old Bread A Boiled Egg Yolk ( or Not if you’re Vegan) 6 or More Tablespoons of Olive Oil 5 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar 3-4 Big Garlic Cloves 3 Teaspoons of Salt Ground Black Pepper 1/4 Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika 1 Teaspoon of Ground Cumin A Tray of Ice Cubes (I added a handful of Okara – by product of Tofu making – just because I had it) 🍅 The purest out there can remove the tomato skins and seeds then sieve the juice… Today I was pushed for time and didn’t have enough tomatoes so I just chopped up about ½ kg of fresh tomatoes and used a bottle of bio passata. I mixed this in a bowl with the chopped bread and Okara then added a cup of water to thin out the passata. 🍅 If you want to you can also remove the cucumber seeds but I only peeled mine as my blender is amazing. I then crushed the garlic, in my Spanish garlic plate, and mixed the salt into the pulp. 🍅 It was almost time for me to collect Amelie from school so I just threw everything into the blender (except the ice) and turned it on full power until everything was totally blended up. I then transferred it into a large pot, added the ice and kept in the fridge for 4 hours until cold. I served it with cubed cucumber, chopped boiled eggs, cheese pieces, some sliced (homegrown) chilli peppers – just for me – and some fresh bread. 🍅 🍅 🍅 🍅 🍅 #makeyourown #gazpacho #summersoup #gazpachosoup #stayathomedad #homecooking #homecooked #vegetarian #vegan #recipe #vegetarianrecipes #vegetarianfood #homemade #naturalrecipes #healthymeals #lavieageneve #genevalifestyle #okara
