Okay, so my dear friend Sonia and I were doing a work session at her apartment yesterday and she served me a lovely gazpacho. I LOVE gazpacho for its light, crispness and so the next day I made my own. I like a coarse cold soup so I decided to make gazpacho in the food processor. I used this recipe from Chef John: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/222331/chef-johns-gazpacho/. Because 90% of my cooking is done on a whim, I didn’t have everything I needed. I would have to improvise. You can check out the original recipe, but here’s my version:
- 1/2 sweet apple
- 3 carrots
- Put everything in the food processor and process for 1-2 minutes.
- Cover and chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.
- Season cold soup with salt and black pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with basil.
- Wow! That was easy and delicious!
