Dai Nasty’s Fine Dai-ning: Gazpacho a la Gramsci


With the nights drawing in Mrs Nasty and I like to tuck into this classic Spanish cold soup to remind us of summer. There are many recipes out there but this is my favourite and it’s also the most left-wing:

 

  • 1kg ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 2 ripe red peppers (roast them first under a hot grill and remove the blackened skins)
  • 1 large cucumber, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed (like the proletariat under the iron jackboot of the Cameron/Clegg junta)
  • 150ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2tbsp sherry vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

 

Put the above in a blender and blend until smooth, then adjust the salt, pepper and vinegar to taste and stir well. Finally, chill the gazpatcho in the fridge. Serve cold.
