Occasionally you stumble across the most amazing things when you're not even looking for them. I was looking for a Canadian dish for ZWT II, tripped over a bump called "The New Enchanted Broccoli Forest" cookbook by Mollie Katzen & fell face-down in a bowl of this soup. I gotta tell ya ... this looks so good to me, is 1 of the easiest recipes I've ever found, is definitely in the basement of the "evil calorie house" & has my much cherished Tex-Mex thing goin on too! I can hardly wait to try this! ... Per the recipe, "Showcase those underipe tomatoes in this delicious & gloriously colored Mexican variation on a Spanish theme. If you can't find green tomatoes, use the least ripe ones available." (Stated time does not include chilling time)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a lrg bowl & stir well to get a good distributional mix.
  2. Purée the mixture in a blender or food proc till reasonably smooth (doesn't have to be perfect).
  3. Transfer to a container w/a lid & chill till very cold (Keeps well for dys if tightly covered & refrigerated).
  4. Serve plain or topped w/a tortilla chips garnish. (NOTES: Lime slices would also be very nice visually as an opt garnish.).

My husband and I both loved this. (My children, though, wouldn't touch it after the vinegar and cumin went in. I think they didn't like the smell.) We will definitely make this over and over. When I can't get green tomatoes, maybe I'll try tomatillos instead. I added a dollop of sour cream to the top for garnish.

Dennis's first comment~ "This tickles my mouth this is so good!!" After polishing off one bowl, he came to get another. I had never used green tomatoes for Gazpacho, because the tomatoes ripen so fast here on the farm. I grabbed these the other day so they were perfect. I followed this wonderful recipe to a "T" except for putting items in bowl first. I just chopped everything in big chunks added seasonings etc. and whirled the food processor on pulse. I then added the water, to the right consistency, and thin sliced cucumber sticks on top for garnish. Presto, great recipe, twissis! Thank you we really enjoyed this!
