Gazpacho, Cheese toast and Shaved Carrots


Another one for the summer lunch series. On a hot Saturday afternoon all you want is a cold cooling lunch. The spanish Gazpacho is an ideal candidate paired with Cheese toast and Shaved carrots. Bless the person who invented this new way of serving carrots too.

Here is a tasty Gazpacho you would want to try instantly. It is quite a flexible recipe and adjust the sourness as you like.

Ingredients

2 tomatoes
4 inch piece of capsicum
1 cucumber
1/2 lime juice
2 teaspoon vinegar
2 cloves garlic
salt and sugar to taste
1 piece of dry bread (optional)

Puree all the ingredients together, pass thru a juice sieve and serve chilled.

I made simple cheese toasts with green chili bits to go with the Gazpacho for this summery lunch and added color to the platter with shaved carrots sprinkled with just sea salt.

If you enjoy pure natural flavors it can't get better than this.
