Here’s a quick and easy Gazpacho recipe from Laura, the manager of our Reading China & Glass store in Lancaster, Pa. It’s perfect for using those summer tomatoes from the garden, and the Vitamix does all the work for you. Laura’s recipe is a slight variation of a recipe she found on the Zing Zang website. We hope you love it as much as we did!
Zingy Gazpacho Recipe
- 2 cups Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix
- 1 cup tomato juice
- 2 small tomatoes, quartered
- 1 cucumber, peeled & quartered
- 1/2 small onion
- 1 sweet red pepper, seeded & quartered
- 1 garlic clove
- 3 tbs white wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 tbs lemon juice
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 3 ice cubes
Place the ingredients into your Vitamix in the order they are listed. Start on Variable 1 and quickly go to Variable 5. This will go quick! Roughly 30 seconds. We recommend serving with a heaping tablespoon of chopped cucumber and tomato on top, and another drizzle of EVOO.
As always, crusty bread on the side is a must! Enjoy!
