So this was the first time I've made gazpacho, I don't know why, given that there are a bazillion recipes out there, and it always seemed like I was out of one or two things, but today, faced with a bevy of veggies and not enough time/appetite to eat them all, gazpacho came to mind.

My ingredients:

  • Fresh from the garden tomatoes (yes, it's almost September and I FINALLY have ripe tomatoes)
  • Cucumbers
  • Zucchini
  • Carrot (only one carrot, that's all that was in the fridge)
  • Celery
  • Onion
  • Lemon Juice
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Hot sauce
  • Horseradish
  • Minced garlic
  • EVOO
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Roughly chop all veggies and place them in a food processor and pulse for a moment until everything is blended.

I added the following:
  • 2T lemon juice
  • 1T Worcestershire
  • 1T Hot sauce
  • 1/2T horseradish
  • 1/2T garlic
  • Drizzle of EVOO
  • Salt & Pepper
Blend again until everything is combined.

The result?  Pretty good!  It's got just a little bit of heat to it, but I want to see how it tastes tomorrow before I decide to add anymore.   (And the jury is in, it's got the perfect amount of heat for me.  You may want to cut back if you don't want a lot)  What a super simple way to use up veggies, have a super delicious meal and feed a crowd!
