Gazpacho

25 May

We’ve very hopefully created a new tag called ‘summer recipes’. I feel this could be tempting fate, but gazpacho kinda forces summer into your kitchen. You can’t fight it.

This recipe is adapted from the totally fabulous – but not very veggie friendly – the New Spanish Table.

Gazpacho

  • 5 tomatoes (3 cups)
  • 1 cucumber (about 150g – smallish)
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2/3 C bread crumbs (or stale bread, cubed and soaked in water)
  • 3 large spring onions
  • 1/3 C water
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 2 TBSP sherry vinegar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/8 ysp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds

Throw all the veg, breadcrumbs and spices into a blender and blitz for all you’re worth. Add vinegar to taste.

Finito!

Estimated cost: £2.30

Musical accompaniment: The Cave Singers
