    Gazpacho

    This is a very flavorful and refreshing Gazpacho, hearty enough to serve yearround. It can be difficult to get raw garlic into your diet and this is an excellent option, it adds some heat and depth to the tomatoes.


    Ingredients
    2
    pounds
    very ripe, good-quality tomatoes, coarsely chopped
    2
    scallions, chopped
    3
    garlic cloves
    1
    large cucumber, chopped
    3
    tablespoons
    Olive Oil
    *
    Juice of 1 lemon
    2
    tablespoons
    sherry vinegar
    *
    handful of fresh basil
    *
    a few stems fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
    2
    slices white bread, cubed
    *
    olive oil, for frying
    1/2
    red pepper, finely diced
    *
    cucumber, finely diced
    *
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Directions
    Put tomatoes, scallions, garlic and most of the cucumber (retain a small amount for garnish) into the blender and blend until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve to remove most of the pulp.
    Put the mixture back in the blender and slowly add the olive oil, lemon juice and sherry vinegar until combined before adding the basil and parsley. Be careful not to blend the herbs for too long as you want them to remain finely chopped, not puréed. Chill in the refrigerator.
    To make the garnish, gently fry the bread in olive oil to make croutons. To serve, season gazpacho well before transferring to bowls and topping with the chopped vegetables and croutons.
