Beet Tomato Cherry Gazpacho

Ingredients

  • 2 slices organic red onion
  • 1 large organic beet (about 6 ounces), roasted. Chop – place in small glass or ceramic baker and roast at 425° for 1 hour until tender
  • 2 Cups Bing Cherries
  • 1 small (6 ounces) organic cucumber peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 2 pounds organic ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 sticks organic celery, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium-sized Italian frying pepper
  • 2 large garlic cloves, halved, green germs removed
  • 2 tablespoons organic red wine vinegar, plus a little extra for the onion
  • 3 tablespoons cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • ½ to 1 cup iced water (use purified water)

Directions

  1. Place the onion slices in a bowl, cover with cold water and add a few drops of red wine vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Drain and rinse with cold water. Cut in half or into smaller pieces.
  2. Working in two batches, blend all of the ingredients except the garnishes in a blender (Vitamix is recommended) for 2 minutes or longer, until smooth and frothy. Add olive oil as you mix. Transfer to a bowl or container (a metal bowl is the most efficient for chilling), whisk in vinegar, thin out with more purified water if desired, and chill for 2 hours before eating. Garnish each glass with some diced cucumber, onion and beet leaf for a beautiful presentation!

Prepare in Advance: This can be served the day after you make it. Leftovers will be good for 2 or 3 days.
