I used red tomatoes and only had 3 so i supplemented with a yellow bell pepper, and used 2 jalapeños instead of an anaheim chile. I didn’t peel my apples and might not peel my cucumbers next time. It’s sweet, tangy, and super easy so I’ll definitely be making this all tomato season.
Refreshing and delicious. What a creative way to enjoy fresh raw veggies and gazpacho! Hydrating for hot summer days and activities too. I didn’t have golden tomatoes so used regular and I didn’t peel the apples (have a vitamix so they disappear). Soup was an unappetizing beige color. Next time I may add half a carrot and a small wedge of a beet to make it (hopefully) a more glowing color. I think Darshana’s golden version would be preferable if you can round up the yellow tomatoes. Might use a yellow or green apple then so the peels wouldn’t distract from the beautiful color. My three friends loved it too. Oh and I added a standard ice tray of ice to the blender because I wanted to try it cold right away and the extra liquid from the ice didn’t dilute or thin it too much. Thanks for the wonderful new twist on a old recipe. One that’s easy too!
