Yes, there are a ton of gazpacho recipes on th zaar. But this one is slightly different. Very yummy, from "Weight Watchers Miracle Foods" cookbook. As written, each serving (1 cup) is 2 WW points. I used diced tomatoes primavera (with carrots and zucchini) and olive oil infused with garlic. Feel free to use what you have, though. Cooking time is chill time.
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) candiced tomatoes with onion and garlic (undrained and cold)
- 1 cup vegetable juice (cold)
- 3⁄4 cup peeled and seeded cucumber, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup green pepper, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup green onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 -3 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄8 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground pepper
- 12 fat free croutons
- Mix the first 11 ingredients together in a bowl.
- Check the consistency, adding a tiny bit more vegetable juice if you prefer it thinner.
- Let chill for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
- Ladle 1 cup soup into a bowl and top with 3 croutons.
This was right up my alley! I made it on Saturday and took a little taste, it was ok, then I didn't try it again until Tuesday after a good run. Wonderful! The flavors blended beautifully after it sat. I can't wait to try this with fresh tomatoes from my garden this fall. To add just a bit more protien, I did add a can of baby shrimp to it. Great recipe ladypit!
I recently had gazpacho in a restaurant and enjoyed it, so I wanted to give it a whirl. I used a v-8 juice recipe by Dib's loosely as a guide for making the juice part (using fresh tomato), since I was trying to make it spicier like the one I'd had in the restaurant. I used the tomatoes with onion, green pepper, and celery by Hunts. I enjoyed this very much as part of a light lunch for myself. I'm going to make it again to have on hand in an attempt to each more veggies! update: I made this again just pureeing a fresh tomato for the juice and adding a pinch of cumin/chili powder and it was great. I didn't even chill it and it was really tasty. I was surprised how good the canned tomatoes were. They have a touch of sweetness. Roxygirl
Very tasty. I used crushed tomatoes because that was all that I had and a half of a leftover yellow pepper in place of the green pepper. I added lots of ground white pepper and more salt than the recipe says, as well as more hot sauce. I tried if after 30 minutes and thought it was so-so, but after an entire day in the fridge, the flavors have combined and it's very tasty and quite refreshing. I highly encourage you to let it chill overnight if you're going to make this.
