Here we are meandering off the menu again. Why is it that I have trouble getting enthused about fish? Anyway, cut the fish and paste in vegetables! I am trying gazpacho for a third time and think I get it right this time.
I make enough that we each have two bowls and it is plenty for dinner. I use a combination of fresh tomatoes, canned diced tomatoes, and fresh salsa for the tomato component. I also add some V8 for more liquidity. There is cucumber, onion, garlic, and cilantro along with sherry vinegar and olive oil in the mix. And speaking of mixing I really enjoy plopping everything in the blender roughly chopped, hitting the button, and seeing my ingredients turn into soup! This is a great way to keep the kitchen cool on a hot night and a wonderful way to eat lots of veggies.
