Yes, I’m combining the posts again this week – but with good reason! I used a portion of our CSA share this week to cook my new recipe this week: gazpacho!
First – our share:
This week, we got:
- New potatoes – not used yet
- Green beans – not used yet
- Collard greens – served with chicken and mac & cheese
- Corn – used for corn chowder
- Fresh onions – used in various dishes
- Cantaloupe – used for snacking
- Bell pepper
- Cherry tomatoes
I used the bottom 4 ingredients to make gazpacho.
Week: 31 of 52
First, I soaked some bread in tomato juice and pureed that mixture when it was soft.
I added the pureed bread to a mixture of chopped tomatoes and cucumber and then pureed all of that together.
Once this mixture was fully pureed, I added red wine vinegar and olive oil and pureed again. Then you should strain out the solids, but I opted not to, in order to not waste anything!
After refrigerating overnight, I served the gazpacho with chopped cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, and cherry tomato on top. This is a beautiful summer soup!
