If you are only going to eat chocolate occasionally, eat the very best quality chocolate you can find. The same holds true for gazpacho. The quality and flavor of heirloom tomatoes is critical.
They come in many colors, from deep purple to bright yellow. Taste test them at your market. Visualize a chilled, spicy, and chunky gazpacho that almost makes a meal in a bowl.
Most recipes use tomato juice. This recipe, modified from Epicurious.com, recommends squishing the vegetables with your fingers. While it was kind of fun for a while, a food processor did a better job than my fingers on the firmer chunks.
The original recipe calls for a red and yellow bell pepper. They aren't yet in season at our market so I used bottled roasted red peppers.
The "heat" can be varied to taste. I might use jalapeño Tabasco next time.
The flavors and texture make this a wonderfully complex and tasty offering.
