This isn't a genuine Spanish recipe but it's quick and nice in very hot weather.
A tin of tomatoes or fresh skinned ones. ( Drop tomatoes in very hot water for a minute, drain and peel. The skins come off easily )
A clove of garlic and half a small onion.
Half a cucumber, peeled.
A de seeded green pepper. ( bell pepper..not the hot, ones)
Salt and black pepper.
A slice of soaked bread. ( Just put it in water briefly until it's soaked through )
Liquidise the lot, put in the fridge, to go cold. Eat cold. Very refreshing.

Hi Genny! :D
That sounds really good.
I'm gonna print those recipes and when I go shopping tomorrow, I'll go get the ingredients for that.

Take care,
Anne :)

I don't think he eats tomatoes, peppers or aubergines ? I put some olive oil in my gazpacho but only about a tablespoon. Didn't put it in the list of ingredients because not everyone likes, olive oil. I buy the virgin olive oil..the greeny one. I wonder what Dirk does, eat....ie likes and dislikes over and above the macrobitic diet. I eat all sorts f fresh fruit, too..rather than just, having what grows locally as suggested in the macrobiotic diet..way of life..you know ! I wish that Dirk would do a book or put some recipes in his next book.

Anyone remember that episode of Red Dwarf? :lol:
I remember making gazpacho soup many, many, many years ago. For catering class, the teacher asked, at home we make something healthy and that was my item :)
