Thanks to my friend Chris for this recipe. This silky smooth gazpacho is the perfect thing to make with your ripe garden tomatoes. Be sure to chill it well before serving. You could also garnish this with a chilled, cooked prawn, or a slice of hard boiled egg. This is just the thing to make on these hot September days.
- 5-6 juicy ripe tomatoes, quartered
- 1 cucumber, peeled and cut into large chunks
- 1/3 C. olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 t. Kosher salt or to taste
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend for three minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. The mixture should be very smooth and creamy. Pour into a carafe or pitcher and chill for at least two hours before serving. Stir gently before pouring into chilled cups.
