Yummy@Home Gazpacho

vegetablesSince it's been so hot in NYC the past couple of days, anything cold has become infinitely more desirable.

I bought a bunch of fresh vegetables at the greenmarket originally for a bbq, but when it just got too hot to even do that I decided to put them to good use by testing out my new food processor (thanks Foodbuzz!) and make a gazpacho.

gazpachoYou can make gazpacho with pretty much whatever you want - I mean I don't think exact proportions are necessary.

Just use what you have in the house - fresh ingredients are essential and then continually taste test!

My gazpacho had:
  • 3 red bell peppers chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped
  • 2 cucumbers - peeled and chopped (I just left the seeds in)
  • 1 large onion
  • fresh parsley
  • crushed garlic
  • black pepper and salt
Combine all in the food processor and then refrigerate for a couple hours to let the flavors build.

A perfect way to cool down on these hot and steamy August NYC days....
