Serrano-Cucumber Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a cold raw vegetable soup typically made with tomatoes, though we've opted out of the tomatos here and work more with peppers and cucumbers. Serrano peppers add a spicy kick and raw pepper flavor to a chilled gazpacho. Enjoy this for a light lunch or meal starter.

Ingredients

  • 2 large cucumbers, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 serrano peppers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon basil, chopped

Cooking Directions

  1. Set aside 1/4 cup of the diced cucumbers and cover.
  2. To a food processor, add remaining cucumbers, 1/2 cup olive oil, ice water, garlic, 1/4 cup white wine vinegar, 1 serrano pepper, and lemon juice. Process until smooth.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large bowl and chill at least one hour.
  4. To a separate mixing bowl, combine onion, 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar, reserved cucumbers, basil, remaining serrano peppers, 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Toss.
  5. Serve chilled cucumber-serrano soup mixture into serving bowls and spoon the serrano-cucumber mixture over the top.
