1 red onion (peeled, cut in quarters)
2 yellow peppers (cut in quarters, seeded)
3 large cucumbers (peeled, seeded)
4 large garlic cloves
5 flavors: 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, cumin/3 tablespoons each of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar
4 cups of premium tomato juice (I use Looza)
8 tomatoes (quartered--I don't peel--some might like to parboil and peel)
*Of course this soup is at it's yummiest with farm-fresh, preferable organic veggies!
We love our gazpacho quite chunky, but some might prefer it smoother. Garnish with fresh parsley, goat cheese (local, farmstand variety!), hot sauce and/or croutons. It is also a healthy "salsa" with tortilla chips. Conveniently, the Looza bottle is a great vessel to store leftovers in--if there are any! We always have a bottle of 1-2-3 Gazpacho in our fridge, all summer long, for ourselves and for guests who pop over. Summer in a jar.
