gazpacho...ole!

If this current heatwave is anything to go by, we're going to hell in a handbasket and it's happening after this short break.

If you're a soup fan but you're not a fan of losing 2kg - sauna style - whilst eating it, then gazpacho just might be your new best friend. It's quick, it's easy and best of all, it's cool as a cucumber.

Ingredients:

1 tin of diced roma tomatoes
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp Tobasco sauce
1/2 a Vita Wheat (yes, you read right - you can also use a slice of day old sourdough)
1 slosh of Worcestershire sauce
3 large sage leaves
1/4 cup of chilled water
salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil to taste
pinch each of smoked paprika and cinnamon

Method:

Blend all of the above until smooth. Add water until you've reach the consistency that you're happy with.
Chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes
Serve garnished with a few drops of good olive oil and sage leaves
