gazpacho

Once summer hit, all I wanted was soup.  I don’t know why but despite the heat, I craved vegetable soups.  The summer corn soup I made a month or so ago was more than satisfying, but then my cousin sent me a recipe for another summer soup that renewed my craving: gazpacho.  Gazpacho is a cold, tomato-based soup with Spanish origins.  I had never had it before, but what could be bad about pureeing a bunch of fresh raw vegetables together and letting the flavors meld together overnight.

                                           

Recipe adapted from Ori’s mom via my cousin Rachel

How I eat it: garnished with some fresh basil the next day (the longer it sits, the better the flavor)
