Gazpacho with Harissa Oil

DSCN0895

Gazpacho is a cold soup, yes cold, that is so refreshing and delicious in the summer when all of the vegetables and tomatoes are at their peak ripeness. With a few simple ingredients, you can cool off with this flavor-packed and healthy chilled soup. The harissa oil adds a subtle heat to this soup, giving it an interesting layer of flavor that will set it apart from the rest. You can find Fiore products at their many Maine locations including Bangor, Rockland, Bar Harbor, Freeport, Lewiston, Newport, and seasonally in Vinalhaven and Northeast Harbor, or on their website at www.fioreoliveoils.com.

Ingredients:

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 roma tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 kirby cucumbers, chopped
  • 10 oz. V-8 (I use the spicy flavor)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Fiore Harissa Oil www.fioreoliveoils.com
  • 1 tablespoon Fiore Sicillian Lemon Balsamic www.fioreoliveoils.com

Instructions:

In a food processor, pulse the ingredients, making sure not to puree them too much. This soup is supposed to be textured. Chill in the refrigerator for several hours. The longer this soup sits, the better it gets. Serve chilled with a dollop of sour cream and some grilled bread slices. Garnish with an extra drizzle of harissa oil.
