Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Fresh Raw Vegan Summer Strawberry Gazpacho

• 3 pounds medium ripe tomatoes, cored
• 1 medium cucumber, peeled
• 1 medium red bell pepper, cored and seeded
• 1/4 medium red onion
• 2 garlic cloves
• 1/2 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley, long stems removed
• 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled
• juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
• 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar, or to taste
• up to 1/2 cup water, if desired
• 1 Tbsp cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
1. In batches, combine the tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, garlic, parsley, and strawberries in your blender or food processor and puree until relatively smooth; for a chunky version pulse instead of puree.
2. Add half the lemon juice, vinegar, and salt, and blend. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary by adding lemon juice, vinegar, and/or salt. If the gazpacho is too thick, add some or all of the water. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
3. Transfer the gazpacho to a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil.
4. Serve in bowl, teacups, or glasses.
5. Serves 4. Takes about 25 minutes to make.
