Gazpacho (Gordon Ramsay's recipe)


I was watching Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Home Cooking Season 1 (Episode 7) on TV and one of the recipes that caught my attention was the stunning Gazpacho soup.

Gazpacho is a cold soup made of raw vegetables, usually with a tomato base. So, on this day, the last day of August, the very last day of blog-hop Cook Like A Star - Gordon Ramsay, I make Gazpacho! Just in time! :D


Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 4)

Note: My modifications in orange.

6 ripe vine tomatoes, finely chopped
1 fat garlic clove, peeled and finely crushed
1 (small) red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
1 (small) yellow pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
1 small red onion, peeled and finely chopped (omitted)
1/2 cucumber, peeled, deseeded and finely chopped (I use 1/2 Japanese cucumber, with seeds intact and finely chopped)
Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
300ml chicken stock
300ml tomato juice
1 large handful basil and tarragon leaves, chopped (I used 1 teaspoon of mixed dried herbs)
Dash of Tabasco sauce
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Good quality olive oil, to drizzle
Croutons, to serve


How to:

1. Put all vegetables in a large bowl and sprinkle over some salt and pepper. Mix well.

2. Pour in chicken stock and tomato juice to cover, then stir in mixed herbs and a dash each of Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. Cover with cling film and chill for at least four hours to let the flavors meld. (I leave it to chill overnight in the fridge.)

3. Drizzle with olive oil and croutons scattered on top before serving. Serve cold.

A medley of brightly colored vegetables!

Ready to be chilled.


Power-packed with antioxidants!
