Barbara's GazpachoUser Submitted Recipe
Healthy Blender Meal
4 tablespoons minced garlic
2 & 1/2 lbs vine ripened tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped or canned low sodium tomatoes
1 medium size cucumber, peeled, chopped & seeded
1/2 large red bell pepper, chopped & seeded
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
2 cups tomato juice
6 or 7 shakes of Tabasco
1 tsp salt or salt substitute
Dash of pepper
Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for about 1 minute or less for easy skin removal, or use approximately the same weight in canned tomatoes. Coarsely chop the vegetables. Add all other ingredients. Puree in blender until completely smooth. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with very thinly sliced baby scallions - white tips and green stalks - and bite-sized chunks of peeled cucumber. Add some garlic croutons if you like, too.
