Cool off with an organic and original gazpacho!

Aug 07, 2012

With the arrival of the heat, what you most want to eat are light and refreshing dishes. Gazpachos meet both requirements, as they are low in calories but very energetic and revitalizing, they hydrate the body and are served very cold. Surely you are thinking of the well-known Andalusian gazpacho, made from tomato. But the truth is that gazpachos give you the chance to create and innovate, combining interesting flavors and textures. Surprise yourself with this sour apple-based gazpacho, with a creamy finish of goat cheese, and a touch of basil oil. Not without telling you beforehand that gazpacho is a typical dish in Spanish culinary history and its origins date back to the XNUMXth century. At that time, the peasants obtained the ingredients directly from their land. A rich gazpacho, ready in a moment from the land to the soup plate. Cooking with foods that are as natural as possible guarantees an authentic flavor, much tastier and with all its nutritional properties. That is why our recommendation is to prepare this recipe with organic products, since current organic agriculture and livestock is the closest thing we have to the peasant lands of the XNUMXth century. There are organic supermarkets and cooperatives where you can find all the organic fruits, vegetables, cheeses and spices necessary to delight your palate to the fullest with this fresh apple gazpacho.
