Delicious Gazpacho

Here is a delicious summer recipe from The Fat Resistance Diet. It brings together wonderful vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell pepper with fresh herbs and garlic.

Fast and easy to make right in your blender, gazpacho is about freshness and big flavors. Bursting with beautiful tomato color, gazpacho is rich in antioxidants including lycopene. This recipe combines a nice vegetable crunchiness with a touch of satisfying spiciness.

1 1⁄2 Pounds Ripe Tomatoes
1 Cucumber
1 Yellow or Red Bell Pepper
1 Red or Sweet Onion
2 Cloves Garlic
1 1/2 Cup Tomato Juice or Vegetable Juice

Juice of 1 Lime
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1⁄2 Cup Fresh Parsley
1⁄4 Teaspoon Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Give the tomatoes, cucumber, pepper and onion a rough chop and toss into the blender. Add diced garlic and onion, chopped parsley, and blend until chunky. Pour half out into a bowl. With half the vegetable mixture remaining in the blender, add the vegetable juice, lemon juice, and olive oil into the blender and blend again until smooth. Combine both mixtures together and season with salt and black pepper. Serve hot or cold depending on the season.
