The real gazpacho

Gazpacho is not just ANY cold soup! Gazpacho does not have avocado, gazpacho does not have mint in it. Gazpacho is a cold cucumber, tomato and green pepper soup. Gazpacho has lots and lots of garlic!

You can make authentic gazpacho with Ontario grown ingredients:

All you need is:
1 large seedless cucumber
3 medium tomatoes
1 medium green pepper
1/2 red onion
4 cloves of garlic
1 panini bread
Really concentrated Knorr vegetable broth
Oil and vinegar to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Peel the cucumber and the garlic cloves, chop all ingredients and put them all in the blender:

Puree the ingredients until consistency is that of a creamy soup.
Serve in a bowl (again, gazpacho is not like a V8 juice, it is eaten like a soup, not drunk like a juice!). Garnish it with tiny chopped pieces of bread, cucumber, tomato and green pepper.

Delicious, and really, really garlicky! Not for the faint of mouth!
