"It’s a blended salad… or a salad smoothie."
Impromptu gazpacho soup class at BCG Hostel, Barcelona. Run by the experts, Mr and Mrs BCG. Described as a blended salad, it was delicious and really easy. Here’s my rough notes on the recipe, which was for 10 people!
- A lot of tomato (approx 1 big tomato per person)
- 1 cucumber
- 1 capsicum / pepper - yellow or red preferably
- 1 medium onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Vegetable oil
- A good swirly squirt of white, mature vinegar.
Roughly chop fresh ingredients and blend, in batches if required. Add salt, pepper, vinegar and oil to blender and taste, adjust, taste, adjust. Put your serious face on for this final step.
Pour into serving dishes and you’re ready to eat! Mrs BCG was adamant basil should not be added. I think Italians might have a different opinion.
