Gazpacho

Gazpacho, is a cold Spanish tomato based vegetable soup. I tried it with tomato, bell peppers and cucumber with. It was awesome. I guess it tastes great, even when its hot.

Ingredients
Tomato - 2
Onion - 1/2
Red Bell Pepper - 1/2
Cucumber - 1/2
Garlic - 2 cloves
Bread - 1
Butter or Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Pepper Powder or red chilli paste - as per taste
Salt to taste

Method
Blanch tomatoes and mash them. Soak bread in water/milk and keep it aside.
Heat butter, saute onions, minced garlic and finely chopped bell pepper till raw smell is gone.
Grind all these together with chopped cucumber till its a smooth paste. Add salt and pepper powder/red chili paste and refrigerate for 5 hours.
Serve chilled with some chopped bell pepper, cucumber pieces. Instead you can heat the ground paste with little milk and serve hot with cheese.

Im sending this to Srivalli's Soups and Salads Mela and to Lynds Sweet Heat #2


Bon Appetit!!
