Prescription. Gazpacho to calm the heat of this spring.

Are the days in which the weather begins to change and it is always good to give freshness to the body and the food that we consume. And if, in addition, we can do it in a healthy way and that will inject vitamins and nutrition to our body, as what better. This recipe we share with you after a special dinner that you cook for a Spanish friend with nostalgia for the flavors of his land and is one of the easiest that we can give them. On the menu today: Gazpacho.

For the Gazpacho we’re going to need:

  • 6 tomatoes ripe.
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • Cucumber (one piece)
  • The heart of an onion.
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • The crumb of half a baguette or a croissant great. (Dejenla macerate covering of water)
  • Salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil (Eye: That is of extraordinary quality, if you don’t ruin your gazpacho)
  • 1 hard-boiled egg, minced or chopped Parsley to decorate.

There are to peel the cucumber and the tomatoes. For these last, to warm water in a pot and make a cut in the shape of a cross in the bottom of the tomatoes. Prepare a bowl with water and ice. When the water is boiling, put the tomatoes to the pot by not more than 40 seconds and sáquenlos to put them directly in the water with ice. This will allow the skin to soften easily and can throw it like layers of the cuts that were made. Eye: This trick will serve you for many recipes because remember that we use a lot of tomato “concassé” which means peeled, seeded, and cut into cubes.

On the other hand, take out the vein and seeds from the peppers. Now comes the easy. Put the tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, onion, bread and garlic. Pounded until everything is mixed well and add olive oil in the form of thread to emulsify. The texture should be is like a liquid cream. Pass a bowl going with a chinese strainer to avoid impurities. Refrigerate for an hour minimum and serve decorating it with sticks of cucumber, or diced hard-boiled egg, or just a bit of finely chopped parsley. It also serves for large meetings. If so, I recommend that will serve them in glasses tequila.
