When it’s hot out there (like it was during the last week), I don’t feel like standing at the hot oven or stove to prepare something delicious. All I crave in this case is something refreshing, easy-peasy made. I guess that’s the reason why the Spainish invented their cold soups … Gazpacho!
Recipe: Serves 3-4.
Ingredients: 500 ml minced canned tomatoes, 1 big onion (diced), 250 g fresh tomatoes (cut into pieces), 1 cucumber (peeled & diced), 4 TblSps olive oil, 2 garlic gloves (crushed), 1-2 bell peppers (cut into pieces), 100 g toast (cubed), salt.
Preparation: Set aside app. a handful of the cubed vegetables. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl. Blend until a smooth texture is reached. Season with salt. (Either go on with the recipe or let it cool down in the fridge for an hour or longer.) Top with set-aside vegetables. Serve either with roasted toast cubes (simply roast a few toast cubes with olive oil in a pan) or with a slice of bread.
