Ingredients (For 4 people)
500 gm ripe tomatoes
1 onion (optional- I did not add as the one’s I have currently are very pungent)
1 medium capsicum (deseeded)
3-4 cloves of garlic
5-6 fresh basil leaves (Use dried herbs in case you dont have this)
1 tspn paprika/ cayenne pepper/ red chilli powder
salt to taste
1) Mix all ingredients in a blender and make a smooth puree
2) Strain the puree to get a fine liquid. Use regualr tea strainer.
3) Chill it in refrigerator for 3-4 hours and serve.
I did not discard the pulp that I had strained. I put it in a sauce pan with a spoonful of olive oil and cooked it till it became sauce like. Applied it on toasted brown bread and enjoyed with my glass of Gazpacho.
