"Blessed are those who can
Veggie Rice

A fresh alternative to typical spanish gazpacho



Often when it is hot we don't feel like eating and then we have no energy.  This recipe is one I found in the city of Seville where summers are hot, humid and full of life.  With out a lot of effort it fills the belly and soothes an over heated soul.

  • 3 medium cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 
  • 3 cups plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 cup broth, chicken vegetable or whey from making cheese
  • 1/4 tsp Picante Passion
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Garnish with cherry tomatoes

Combine all ingredients except for the almonds and parsley. Cover and refrigerate overnight so that the flavors marinate.  If you prefer a smooth consistency, puree in a blender or food processor.  Immediately before serving, garnish with toasted cubes of day old bread and grape tomatoes.

What you've shared:

Along with gazpacho we serve a salad called in my small town "RIN RAN": fresh tomatoes just picked in my garden,cucumber,a boiled egg and a can of sardines in olive oil. And finally a very cold slice of watermelon.


Here are some more edible ideas for cool evenings.
