|08:11 am - Yea, finally summer|
Yes, it's finally summer. I know because I've just made my first batch of gazpacho soup!
This year's recipe
Hoppie's hot peppers
and farmstand cucumbers, bell peppers, celery, onion, and scallions.
+ apple cider vinegar, salt, and olive oil.
I did about 2/3rds puree to 1/3rd dice with made a thick soup. (but it does pour!) and had yummy vegetable bits which makes you feel more like you're eating gazpacho and less like you're drinking V8.
I did not add water or tomato juice.
I did peel and seed the cucumbers. I did not peel or seed the tomatoes. I removed the bell pepper seeds and ribs, but not the hot pepper seeds or ribs.
Note to self: Always start with your big bowl for the soup. Because you sadly underestimate how much soup you make, every single time.

This post actually inspired me to stop by the local produce market and buy a bag of romas as well as a pint of cherry tomatoes, and I think I will roast the latter tonight once it cools off some (it was relatively warm in SF today.)
Thanks for the inspiration! mmm, tomato.
