Gazpacho - 6 ServingsUser Submitted Recipe
1 small onion peeled and quartered
2 cloves of garlic
3 green peppers, seeded and quartered
4 tomatoes (home grown or vine ripened)
2 cucumbers peeled
1/4 cu fresh parsley chopped
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/3 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of lemon juice
3 cups tomato juice
1 avocado cubed
1/4 cup dry sherry (optional)
1/2 cup sour cream
Using the Cuisinart Food Processor -- Process each of the first six ingredients separately until chopped to your liking (some people like it finely chopped; others like it more coarse). Remove to a very large bowl. Add salt, pepper, chili powder, olive oil, lemon juice, tomato juice and sherry. Stir to blend. Chill thoroughly and serve chilled with a dollop of sour cream and some avocado on top. Or use good quality croutons on top as a garnish or a basil leaf or chopped fresh parsley.
The measurements don't have to be exact here. And if your tomatoes are real juicy; you don't need as much tomato juice. It's not an exact science here; you can't really go wrong.
