Gazpacho

This is my adaptation of a New York Times recipe I’ve been tinkering with over the years. It is less like a watery salsa and creamy in texture. The beautiful texture comes from a good amount of Spanish olive oil and a very aggressive tour-of-duty in a Vitamix. If you don’t have a Vitamix you can use a blender or processor and strain the soup through a fine-mesh sieve.

Ingredients

Equipment

Small office knife
Large stockpot
Spider or large slotted spoon
Large bowl with ice water
Vitamix
Chilled bodega glass, cups, or small bowls
Eyedroppers (optional)

Ingredients

2 pounds tomatoes, cored
1 long Anaheim chile, roughly chopped
1 small red onion, roughly chopped, about ½ cup
1 small clove garlic
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons Sherry vinegar
¾ cup good extra virgin Spanish olive oil

How To Make

1
With the office knife, make an incision in the shape of an X at both the top and base of each tomato, about an inch in each direction.
2
Fill the stockpot with water and bring it to a rolling boil.
3
Drop the tomatoes into the boiling water and let boil till you see the skin separate at the X incision, about 20 to 40 seconds.
4
Drop each tomato into the ice bath to stop the cooking.
5
Chop tomatoes, add to the Vitamix with the red onion, garlic, salt, and Sherry vinegar.
6
Process on high speed for two minutes, stopping to scrape the sides if necessary.
7
At medium-low speed, drizzle in the olive oil to incorporate.
8
Taste and adjust for salt if necessary, remembering that the salt will be less pronounced when chilled.
9
Chill for at least four hours in the refrigerator or overnight.
10
Serve in well-chilled bodega glasses, using the eyedropper or a small spoon, garnish with jewel-like drops of olive oil and Sherry vinegar.
