Creating healthy dishes at home can seem like a real hassle. It’s tough to decide to create something healthy when you could just pop a burrito in the microwave and be eating in a few minutes. Fortunately, this delicious, healthy gazpacho recipe exists to make your healthy lifestyle easier.
You just need to follow the below steps:
First, boil some water, and drop in tomatoes that you’ve cut an “X” into the bottom of. Remove them after 15 seconds and put them in an ice bath for about 1 minute. Dry, peel, remove seeds and core from the tomatoes. Be sure to place the seeds and pulp in a fine strainer over a bowl to catch the juices, and squeeze out every bit of it you can. Then, add tomato juice to obtain a total of 1 cup of the juice.
Move to a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients (aside from the basil). Mix. Puree 1 1/2 cups of the mixture on high for 20 seconds and return it to the bowl. Stir this together. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Serve with the basil for a glorious gazpacho.
