Quick and Healthy Gazpacho
There are some recipes that are categorized as “super healthy”. This is one of them. I created this for times when I needed super nutrition. Freshness and the most live healthy ingredients for when I needed a boost. Most of this I gathered from other recipes. I just added a few things that gave it an extra zing. I also wanted this to be fast. Easy. For flavor an optional ingredient is spicy V8 for added body. I also add a super immune superhero, apple cider vinegar which also ads zest. This is mostly all fresh live foods, and will give you an instant pick me up. – Curt
3 Stalks Celery
3 Red Peppers
2/3 cup parsley chopped fine
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 – 8 oz cans spicy V8 Juice
3 cloves garlic minced
1 Red Onion
Salt to taste
1. Chop all vegetables super fine and combine in a large bowl and mix well.
2. Add minced garlic, V8 and salt.
3. Blend roughly about a half of the mixture in a blender on low which creates a fine texture and body to the soup. Pour back into the bowl and stir in.
3. Stir Apple Cider Vinegar at the last. Allow to chill for a few hours.
NOTE: In the summer months, when you have lots of veggies and fresh tomatoes, this is one of the most flavorful fresh dishes in the world. When I want to go on a healing cleanse, I always make a fresh batch of gazpacho and keep it on hand. You an eat it for a few meals a day. You feel great and the live fresh ingredients bring healing and cleansing. There are many variations of gazpacho – the apple cider vinegar and parsley are superfoods that work well with this traditional recipe.
