Taste Explosion: The Rare Breed Chef

A Summer Menu from The Rare Breed Chef : therarebreedchef.com

Gazpacho (Serves 6-8)

 

A super simple classic chilled soup originating in Andalucia. Summertime is the only time to make this, when tomatoes are at their best. Roma vine tomatoes are traditionally used but you can use any with good flavour, a great way to use up any home grown tomatoes too. You can add a touch of ground cumin, paprika or even Jalepenos if you want to add a little extra spiciness.

 

Ingredients

 

1Kg mixed tomatoes

1 cucumber

1 red pepper

4 spring onions

3 cloves garlic

3 thick slices of bread, crust removed

100ml extra virgin olive oil

50ml sherry vinegar

fresh basil

METHOD

Reserve a few slices of tomatoes, pepper and cucumber to serve.

De-seed and roughly chop the pepper and peel and dice the cucumber. Blend with all the remaining ingredients in a food processor adding a little water to reach the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chilled garnished with the reserved ingredients, fresh basil and a drizzle of olive oil.
