What to Do When You Are Sick of Summer Tomatoes? Gazpacho Soup.



My Mama's tomatoes are still going gang-buster. As much as I love a simple tomato salad, it's starting to get a little old eating one every day. So, now I've turned to making loads of "Gazpacho". Here's what I throw in the blender to make some cold, delicious soup in under 15 minutes...

  • 5-8 tomatoes
  • 1-2 bell peppers (I think yellow and orange bell peppers work better in the soup than green ones)
  • a few stalks of celery
  • fresh basil leaves
  • 1 shallot
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 2 Bouillon cubes
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper
  • splash of lemon juice
  • splash of Red Wine Vinegar
  • splash of Worcestershire Sauce

Chill in the fridge for a hour. As with most soups, it takes better the next day!

  1. Also you can roast the tomatoes (cut in half) on oiled baking sheet in 350 oven for 2+ hours. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and any herbs you like. Delicious warm or cold. For dried, just reduce oven and bake til dried, 7-8 hours then freeze. I also like to use larger tomatoes, scoop out inside and fill with tuna salad or chicken salad. Looks kinda fancy sitting on a bed of lettuce!
