Gazpacho

A pretty and pleasantly spiced cold soup. Some like to top it with a dollop of sour cream.

Yield: Yield 4 to 6 cups.

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 large green pepper (reserve and dice 1/4 of the pepper)
  • 3 cups defatted chicken stock or bouillon
  • 1 large can (1 pound 12 ounces) whole tomatoes (reserve and dice 1 cup)
  • 1 medium can (24 ounces) tomato juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
  • 1 cucumber (reserve 1/4 and thinly slice for garnish; finely mince remaining 3/4)

Instructions

Cook the onion, celery, and three-fourths of the green pepper in chicken stock until soft. Then puree with the canned tomatoes (reserving 1 cup diced). Add tomato juice, oil, cumin, and Tabasco then chill. Add the minced cucumber and diced tomatoes just before serving, and garnish each bowl with slices of cucumber.
