Labor Day is behind us, kids are back in school, and we are into our fall routine.

It’s ALMOST time for the hot soups, stews, apple crisp and comfort food but NOT YET! We still have lots of fresh tomatoes and cucumbers to eat up, so I think today is the perfect day to share Gretchen’s Gazpacho recipe. Thanks for sharing, Gretchen!

Have a great day everyone!!!!!!

Have any favorite fall food ideas to share?? Please shoot me an email and I’ll use your ideas for future Tasty Tuesdays.

All IS well!

Gazpacho
from the kitchen of Gretchen Goodwillie

2 PPV for approx. 10 0z. bowl

Serves: 6 to 8

Preparation time: 45 minutes

Cooling time: 60 minutes ideal but not necessary

Ingredients
4 to 6 medium to large ripe tomatoes…peeled and chopped
2 cups of tomato juice…I prefer Campbells
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 green bell pepper or combination of yellow, red and green bell peppers equal to one bell pepper
½ to 1 can of undiluted condensed beef consomme
4 to 6 green onions (scallions) with about three inches of the green tops sliced or chopped
¼ cup red wine vinegar
2-3 Tbs. Olive oil
2 Tbs.of minced parsley
1 clove garlic mashed with 1 tsp. salt
ground pepper to taste
Optional add ½ seeded jalapeno pepper or poblano pepper chopped for additional heat

Directions
Peel and chop tomatoes in a food processor with the garlic clove.

Place into a large pitcher or container for liquids. Add the two cups of tomato juice, consomme, olive oil and vinegar to the tomatoes in the container.

Chop the peppers, onions and cucumbers in food processor (for best results use that order when pulsing in the food processor) and add to the container with the rest of the ingredients.

Garnish with chopped chives, cilantro or avocado. Top with grated cheese. Adjust points accordingly for cheese.

Serve chilled.
