One of the most simple and delicious dishes I enjoy making is Gazpacho. It’s easy, I usually already have all the ingredients hanging around and it’s a summertime classic. A few days ago I went to the Farmer’s Market and picked up some yellow cherry tomatoes, as soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make a Golden Gazpacho with them. I just whipped up this soup and had it for my dinner, it’s crazy how full I feel now. There are just a few ingredients in the Gazpacho and the flavor it packs is amazing.
Time: 15-20 minutes
Equipment: Blender, mincer
2 1/2 cups yellow cherry tomatoes (of course you can use regular yellow tomatoes or red tomatoes but then it’s not golden gazpacho anymore 😉 )
1 small pepper, diced (I used a pepper that had green and red stripes, it really adds a beautiful effect to the soup so just grab something that looks attractive to you!)
1 celery stalk, diced
1 medium carrot, peeled & diced
1 small cucumber, diced
1 small red tomato, diced
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small piece of chard, diced
2 mint leaves, finely chopped (you can also use parsley, cilantro or basil. I just happen to have a herb garden that has been taken over by mint)
Pinch of cayenne
Pinch of hemp seeds
Salt & Pepper according to your taste buds! I like to add two shakes of Maine Coast Sea Seasonings consisting of sea salt, kelp, and dulse. Sea salt contains more minerals than table salt and has a nice healthy dose of iodine.
Lots of love and kind words to the glowing vegetables ❤
Some other vegetables that would taste great in here are romaine lettuce, corn, avocado and jicama.
There aren’t much directions to give besides making sure you clean your veggies up real good & blend just the yellow tomatoes .
