30 Days of Creativity - Day 29: Salmorejo

We are still working through our tomatoes from our recent trip to the Maxwell Street Market. (Planning to restock our fridge with fresh produce this weekend.)

30 Days of Creativity - Day 29: Salmorejo

Here's a salmorejo (thick gazpacho) from an authentic Spaniard (pm):

+6-7 ripe tomatoes
+ 1/2 c olive oil
+ 3 garlic cloves
+ splash of vinegar
+ 1 cucumber
+ 1/2 baguette (soak in water beforehand to soften; strain water)
+ dash of salt
+ other vegetables as desired (carrots are good!)

Blender and puree everything together. Let it sit overnight in the fridge to absorb all flavors. Garnish with hard-boiled eggs and jamon serrano (or prosciutto where jamon serrano is not available). Tuna works well too.

And that's all for today folks. We're signing off early. Que aproveche!
