- red tomatoes (3 large, diced)
- cucumbers (2, diced)
- orange bell pepper (1, diced)
- green bell pepper (1, diced)
- jalapeno pepper (1 or a handful of slices from a jar, diced)
- minced garlic (1 tbsp)
- lime juice (1/3 cup)
- honey (3 tbsp)
- salt and pepper
This is the point where I promote one of my favorite gadgets, the Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender (pictured below). I used it, with the chopper attachment, to dice up all of the vegetables to save myself some time.
First up the peppers.
Dice the cucumbers and add to the bowl.
Add the lime juice. (Note that I used more than the 1/3 amount - I blame my inability to focus on Deadliest Catch - that show is sooo addicting!)
Use a food processor or the hand blender and process all of the ingredients until desired consistency. Some people prefer it chunky, others want it smooth. Its up to you!
Chill in the refrigerator for an hour. Ladle soup into bowls.
Gazpacho I think is normally more red, but I used more orange bell peppers and less tomato so mine turned out somewhat orange-ish. Either way, it was good. and healthy! And I bet if you ate this for a while, you'd lose crazy weight!
