Green Diva Meg’s Easy Gazpacho

Green Divas Foodie-Philes, Recipes 2

In these hot summer months (and lately it seems much hotter than usual), I always try to keep a batch of nice cool gazpacho in the refrigerator. Sometimes a green diva just needs a low-stress salad solution! My kids LOVE it and I seem to be making a couple of batches a week as global warming seems like a hot reality. My recipe has evolved over the years into this low-stress version that is really easy to alter according to what you have on hand or to someone’s particular taste.

Ingredients

1 quart organic tomato juice

1 cup fresh tomatoes (get creative here with whatever is in the garden or at the farmer’s market)

1/2 cup roasted peppers

1/2 red onion – coarsely chopped

1 cucumber – seeded and coarsely chopped

1 – 3 cloves garlic – crushed

1/4 cup favorite herbs (i usually use cilantro, dill and parsley – not necessarily all at the same time, cilantro alone usually)

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil (sometimes mix in some flaxseed oil)

salt & pepper to taste

hot sauce to taste (i love tobacco smokey chipotle myself) – this can be added to individual servings instead of whole batch

Directions

Ready? Mix it all in a large bowl, blend in batches in your blender or food processor. I often put a couple of servings aside (because there are usually people standing by waiting for some) and then I use a funnel and put the remaining back into the 1-quart tomato juice bottle. handy. 

Enjoy!
