Hardy Gazpacho


Squeeze of lemon juice

3-4 tomatoes

1 cucumber

1 red pepper

1 cup basil

¼ onion, or to taste

1-2 cloves garlic, or to taste

½ to 1 t. jalapeño chili

½ avocado

(Add water if you want a thinner consistency).


Chunk all ingredients except avocado, then put in the food processor. Process to desired consistency. Transfer to bowl(s). Cube avocado and garnish soup. May also chop other veggies to garnish if you want to be really fancy, and add a whole basil leave to the garnish.


Of all the ways I have made gazpacho over the years, adding the chili in this recipe is what makes it great. Eat up!!
