Green Gazpacho For The Last Days Of Summer

The last days of summer are here. We are barely using sunscreen anymore. The local pools are closing and we are slowly adjusting to sweaters in the evening. And yet, those summer tomatoes are still calling me! So for warmer days I am still whipping up this green gazpacho - best served freshly blended. Give it a try.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Makes 2 servings:

  • 2 spring onions

  • 1 small Persian cucumber or half of a normal cucumber

  • 1 big tomato (~140g/ 5oz)

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 1/2 red pepper

  • 2 cups frozen peas

  • 1/2 cup stuffed full with fresh basil leaves

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend on high until super creamy.

  2. Serve right away drizzled with extra olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy !
