Peach Gazpacho

July 11, 2012

in HAUSGuest, Recipe, What's for Dinner?

Round two of HAUSGuest. I made a version of this gazpacho with watermelon last week, and it was deelish! Make sure you check out Jenné over at Sweet Potato Soul for more healthy, creative recipes. Enjoy! Marie

All of the best produce is in season right now.

With hot weather comes succulent fruits and vegetables that help to cool you from the inside out.

During these warmer months I find myself eating much lighter than I do in the winter. Blended and chilled soups, vibrant salads and mono-meals of melon become my meals of choice.

I made this simple peach gazpacho after a heavenly trip to the Union Square Green Market, in New York City. There you can find the freshest produce from the tri-state area. I’ve been conducting Green Market tours to help New Yorkers navigate this incredible gem so they can eat healthier without confusion about what to buy or how to prepare it.

Included in the tour is my new e-cookbook. Every recipe has been inspired by my trips to the market, and made with ingredients that can be found in NYC right now. This tasty soup is the first recipe in the cookbook; it’s truly a celebration of the season’s bounty.

Peaches are at the peak of their season right now, but other fruits are too; feel free to experiment with using watermelon and strawberries in place of the peaches. If you’re interested in taking a Green Market tour with me, please send me a message!

Peach Gazpacho
(when making this recipe, reserve a little bit of the diced vegetables to use as garnish on top of the finished soup.)

2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 peaches, chopped
1 cup cucumber, diced
½ cup red onion, diced
½ cup basil, chopped
1 tsp thyme
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil

Place all ingredients- except olive oil- into a blender.

Blend for a few seconds, until lightly pureed, and your desired soup texture is reached.

Turn the blender back on to it’s lowest setting (stir), and slowly pour in the olive oil.

Season to taste with more salt and pepper.

Enjoy right away, or place in the refrigerator for the flavors to marry.
