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.
Made this for a dinner party last night. I used the food processor to chop the veggies to include the canned tomatoes. I used regular diced canned tomatoes without the onion and garlic so I added the full 3 cloves of garlic and 1/8 tsp onion powder. After adding 1/2 tsp hot sauce I decided it needed more of a kick and added 1 finely diced, seeded jalapeno. I garnished it with chopped avocado and fresh cilantro. Everyone loved it!
Yummy! I skipped the cucumber. In place of the veggie juice I used real tomatoes. I also added to the blender 3 ice cubes so I didn`t have to wait. 3 basil leaves went in the blender as well as for the garnish. Very Refreshing, Healthy and Delish.
