Easiest gazpacho

This one can be made in volume, and never disappoints.  And did I mention how healthy it is?

  • around 600g large tomatoes
  • 2 large teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 red or orange pepper (paprika)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 large clove garlic or two if you want it garlicky
  • juice of 1 lime
  • handful of fresh basil leaves
  • around 400 ml water
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon good balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Optional: you can add a small bunch of fresh mint to the blender and Worcestershire sauce to taste when serving.

A great variation for ginger lovers:  reduce garlic and add two inches of fresh ginger, to taste.
