The Great Gazpacho

What to do with all these tomatoes.  Something had to be done, so I decided to freestyle some gazpacho.  I’ve made gazpacho numerous times and I almost always make it differently.

 Sorry, there isn’t a recipe for this. If you are interested, I might be able to talk you through it.  Basically, I put as many vegetables in my blender that would fit.  I started with a variety of my garden fresh tomatoes (skins, seeds & all). Then I added peeled cucumber & green onions (both from my garden), 3 cloves of garlic, some olive oil, kosher salt, sherry vinegar & about 6 saltines (standing in for stale bread).

I pureed it all until well blended and then pushed it through a fine mesh strainer because I like a silky texture.  I finished it with chopped tomato, cucumber & pepper, scallion greens, nasturtium leaves & smoked paprika.
