Tomatillo Gazpacho

It’s been really hot, so…cold soup sounded good.  We had some tomatoes and some tomatillos, several cucumbers and green peppers from our farm box…and voila…gazpacho!
♠ equipment:  a food processor blender

ingredients

  • 4 tomatillos, peeled and quartered
  • 1/4-1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber peeled and rough chopped
  • 1/2 cup of basil (cilantro would be good too)
  • 1 green pepper rough chopped
  • 1/2 medium red onion or shallot
  • 1 serano pepper (anything would be fine)
  • a handful of walnuts
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • salt to taste

The ingredients as they went into the food processor bowl

The Method

This couldn’t be easier–toss all of the ingredients into the food processor and pulse until smooth.  Chill. Serve with a little cilantro (or a chiffonade of basil, which is what I used because I didn’t have any cilantro handy).

The finished product. Tasty.
