Wedding Food Part 1

Spanish Gazpacho

This gazpacho recipe is one that I wrote for the wedding. I have modified it so that it is vegan by using vegan Worcestershire sauce, but you can easily substitute the real sauce that contains anchovies as well if you are not serving to vegetarians.
  • 4 Roma Tomatoes, peeled and seeded
  • 3 stalks of celery, trimmed and roughly chopped
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
  • 3.5 oz sweet onion, roughly chopped
  • .25 cup Vinagre de Jerez (Spanish sherry wine vinegar)
  • .25 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 whole yellow or orange bell pepper, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1.5 tsp chopped garlic
  • .5 cup loose parsley
  • 1 48oz can of salt-free tomato juice
Puree all but the tomato juice in a food processor for at least a minute, until smooth. Pour vegetable mixture and tomato juice into a pitcher and stir. Chill well. Serve in martini glasses garnished with an olive.
