Nothing is better to smooth our appetite on a hot summer day than a delicious cold gazpacho. Raw pureed vegetables brought together under the Spanish sun.

As I recently have some time, I was surfing on the web the other day. Looking to find fresh, fascinating ideas, inspiring dishes that We have never tried before, to surprise my family with. Searching for a while unfortunately could not come across too many interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this fabulous and easy dessert simply by chance. The dessert looked so delightful on its photos, it called for instant action.

It was simple enough to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and just how much my husband is going to enjoy it. Mind you, it is very easy to delight him in terms of puddings. Anyhow, I got into the website: Suncakemom and then followed the detailed instuctions that were coupled with wonderful images of the operation. It just makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you typically have gross hands thus i sincerely appreciate the commitment she put in to build this blogpost and recipe conveniently implemented.

Having said that I am inspired presenting my personal dishes in a similar way. Many thanks for the concept.

I was fine tuning the main recipe create it for the taste of my family. I can say it was an incredible success. They enjoyed the taste, the structure and loved having a delicacy such as this in the middle of a hectic week. They ultimately demanded more, more and more. Thus next time I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m likely to multiply the quantity to keep them delighted.

Wash all the vegetables and get everything ready to go.

Cut the vegetables up into pieces to make the blending process easier.

Optionally peel the tomatoes either by hand or blanching. Removing the peel will reduce the overall acidity of the finished dish.

Pure the tomatoes with a blender then add the rest of the vegetables and salt.

Blend the vegetables with the tomato.

If desired add some sort of bread and pure that as well. This step is totally optional. The bread is meant to thicken the sauce thus if we skip adding the bread we may skip adding water to the mixture.

Don’t forget to add the olive oil, vinegar and if we use bread then the water as well.

Traditionally the gazpacho should be pressed through some sort of sieve to get rid of the seeds but if we are short on time or just don’t want to suffer it through then skip this step.

The finished gazpacho should be kept in a cool place uncovered for a day allowing some of the liquid to evaporate and the flavors to come together but lacking that sort of place the fridge would do just as well.

Serve it cooled down to fridge temperature and try to avoid serving it with ice cubes for Spanish people. ;D
