Clean Out Your Garden and Make Some Gazpacho!

This is a great way to get your veggies in and no cooking is required!

3 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove – smashed
8 saltine crackers (crumbs)
2 cups beef bullion
1 chopped onion
3 celery stalks – chopped
4 sprigs parsley – chopped
6 sprigs watercress – chopped
2 cups tomato juice
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp pepper
A few shakes of Crystal hot sauce
1 large chopped tomato
1 cucumber – peeled and chopped

Chop everything very finely if you don’t have a food processor or blender. Start by setting aside the garlic and olive oil in a small dish to meld the flavors. Then in your blender (or by hand with a plastic baggie and rolling pin) crunch up your saltines. Pour in bullion and add onions, celery, parsley and watercress. Add oil and garlic to blender mix, then add everything but the chopped tomatoes and cucumbers and give the blender a whirl. Pour liquid into lidded containers and refrigerate for at least four hours, or even better, overnight. When ready to serve, scoop chopped tomatoes and cucumbers into soup bowls and pour gazpacho over fresh veggies. Top with a dollop of sour cream should you wish.
