When Life Gives You Tomatoes....


Make Gazpacho! The most simple summer soup.

We returned from our trip to Oregon to find our garden brimming with 7 different varieties of the beast!

Those that were not devoured by our local raccoon are to be transformed in to this weeks dinners

...And to be gifted to those who arrive first!

This recipe is my mother Eva's recipe.  She would make this on hot summer days.  Using as many fresh ingredients from her garden as was possible. It's delicious!


4 cups tomatoes
4 cups chicken broth
2 T red wine vinegar
1T Olive Oil

Put above ingredients in a Cuisinart or blender and pulse for 5 seconds.

1 Yellow onion
1 Large green pepper
2 Large or 4 medium stalks celery
1 Large peeled cucumber

Add to the tomato,broth,vinegar and oil mixture salt and pepper to taste. 

Chill and top with a spoonful of yoghurt, slice of avocado and a sprig of cilantro.
