Spicy Gazpacho
Chilled Hot Soup!
2 thin-sliced cucumbers
1/2 Bunch of Celery
1/2 Red Onion
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1/2 Yellow or Green Bell Pepper
2 Small Hot Chili Peppers
4 Scallions
4 Cloves Garlic
1/2 Cup Fresh Parsley
1 Tbls. Tobasco Sauce
1 Tbls. Salt
1 Tbls. Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1 Tbls. Red Wine Vinegar
2 Tbls. Olive Oil
4 Cups Spicy V8 Juice or
4 Cups Tomato Juice OR
6 Ripe Red Tomatoes

 

Slice the Cucumbers thin.

De-seed the Peppers.

Slice the Scallion Greens thin and set all aside.

Finely chop all the other vegetables except the cucumbers and tomatoes or blend at Chop Speed in a Food Processor(If using whole tomatoes, puree them separately).

Combine all the chopped vegetables, oil, vinegar, tobasco, salt and pepper in a bowl with 3/4 of the sliced cucumbers.

Add the tomato juice/puree/V8 Juice and chill thoroughly.

Garnish with the remaining sliced cucumbers and scallion greens.

Serve with Sourdough bread and a good Chablis.

I don't care for whole tomatoes and their seeds, so I prefer this dish done with the Spicy V8 Juice!
