GF Gazpacho with basil granita

Hello – the sun is out and summer is here!!! Fantastic news 🙂  With the weather being hot we had this for dinner tonight – it was lovely – nice and cold and not too heavy!

There are so many recipes – the one I made up is as follows –

1kg of ripe tomatoes – the redder the better

1 red pepper

I cucumber

2 cloves of garlic

100 to 150 ml olive oil

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Half a chilli (optional  or you can serve this on the side with garnishes if you people don’t like spicy food)

Garnishes – optional – but can include finely chopped cucumber, GF crùtons, red pepper, red onion, spring onion etc

 

Add all your ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth – taste and adjust seasoning if required then refrigerate until served

 

To make the basil granitia (probably better to make this first as it has to be frozen!)

Take a bunch of basil and blend with a tablespoon of sugar, a squeeze of line juice and 100ml of water.   When this is blended pour into a shallow dish and freeze – stirring during freezing to break up the ice crystals

 

To serve – pour the gazpacho into your serving glass and top with some granita.  Serve garnishes separately for people to add as they want – or not if you can’t be bothered!!  Sit back and enjoy – preferably with a glass of sangria!
