Making Gazpacho with Mum

Back by popular demand is my fabulous 83-year-old mum helping me make a refreshing, quick and super healthy gazpacho. As you can probably see from the video (including the ‘blender blunder’!), we don’t really cook by following a recipe or measuring anything!

That said, here are the basic quantities we used – please do adjust to make it your own though:

Serves 4 – 6:
· ½ red onion
· 1 clove garlic
· 4 large, ripe tomatoes
· ½ cucumber
· ½ red pepper
· ½ yellow pepper
· Small handful flat leaf parsley
· 2 cups tomato juice
· 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
· 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
· Salt and pepper to taste

Blitz everything in a blender and leave in the fridge to chill for an hour or two.

To serve, you can finely chop some more cucumber/pepper and sprinkle it on the top with a drizzle of olive oil.

Nice video but the bottles were blocking view of most of your mum’s veggie cutting.
