Easy gazpacho recipe, perfect for hot days! Great to take along on hikes in a Thermos, too.
Prep Time 10minutes
Chill Time 2hours
Total Time 2hours10minutes
Carbs (g): 6
2medium tomatoes(diced and seeds discarded)
1/2cucumber(sliced and quartered)
1tablespoonlemon (OR lime juice)
Make broth and chill well. If you have freezer space, put part in an ice cube tray and freeze. Or, if you have ice, make 2 cups of broth double-strength, chill and use ice to make up the other 2 cups.
Place vegetables in a bowl, add spices and toss well. Add oil and mix to coat. Chill if not serving immediately.
To serve, sprinkle juice over the vegetables and toss. Divide mix between bowls and evenly pour broth (or broth and ice) in each bowl. Serve.
Most bouillon cubes are high in sodium. While normally a detriment, this is actually good in very hot weather to help replace salt lost though sweat. If you are in the heat all day without air conditioning, more salt than normal (as well as lots of liquid) is needed to avoid heat exhaustion and heat cramps.Vegetarian/Vegan Alternative: Substitute vegetable broth for the chicken.
