In this hot weather we want some no cook dishes, right? 😀
Yes we enjoy smoothies, cooler, mojito and different types of fruit juice and mocktails in this season.
Now what about some refreshing chilled, yummy and healthy soup made of raw vegetables and fruits. Nothing is better than a bowl of gazpacho in summer. Some crisp toast and a bowl of chilled no cook soup, perfect dinner for summer.
Gazpacho is a Spanish cold soup made of raw vegetables.
You can get one more cold soup recipe here.
Our this week’s 91st #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #20minutes recipes. My contribution is this chilled, refreshing, healthy and yummy gazpacho.
If you have all the ingredients in your pantry you can make it in a jiffy. Just chop and blend. Keep it in refrigerator and serve chilled or add some ice cubes.
Instead of sugar I have used grapes and watermelon. Fruits made the soup delicious and healthy. And both are easily available in this season. I have used almonds to give a creamy texture.
Chopped tomatoes – 3 cup
Cucumber – 1 small peeled and chopped
Onion – 1 small chopped
Garlic – 1 clove chopped
Capsicum – 1 small chopped
Seedless watermelon cubes – 1/4 cup
Grapes – 1/4 cup
Chopped cilantro – 1/4 cup
Vinegar or lemon juice – 2 tablespoon
Almonds – 1/4 cup soaked and peeled
Olive oil – 1 tablespoon, optional
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped tomato, cucumber, onion and cilantro for garnishing
Taste the chopped cucumber. It shouldn’t be bitter.
Combine all the ingredients. Blend in a mixer grinder.
I have made it smooth but you can keep it little coarse if you like.
I have used vinegar, you can use lemon juice too if you don’t like vinegar.
Taste and adjust salt, pepper and vinegar or lemon juice if require. Drizzle olive oil. I didn’t.
Garnish with chopped cilantro, tomato, cucumber and lemon wedges.
Keep in refrigerator and serve chilled. Or you can add some ice cubes if you want to serve it immediately.
Serve with crisp toast.
Enjoy the delicious, refreshing and chilled gazpacho or cold soup.
