Strawberry Gazpacho
While tomato season is at bay, turn to strawberries to make this refreshing version of the classic Spanish chilled vegetable soup.

Ingredients 
1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped (about 1 1/3 cups)
1/2 English cucumber, peeled and coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 medium red bell pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 pound ripe strawberries, hulled and halved
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon chopped thyme
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup organic vegetable broth
6 strawberries, sliced

Preparation
1. Place tomato, cucumber, and bell pepper in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl.

2. Add halved strawberries to processor; pulse until finely chopped. Add chopped strawberries to cucumber mixture, stirring to combine. Reserve 1 cup strawberry mixture; return remaining strawberry mixture, garlic, and thyme to processor; process until pureed. Return mixture to bowl; stir in olive oil, vinegar, salt, black pepper, and reserved 1 cup strawberry mixture.

3. Cover and chill 4 to 8 hours. Stir in broth. Garnish with sliced strawberries.

    This was fantastic! My berries weren’t very sweet, so I added a half tsp. of brown sugar. Yes, the 1/2 tsp garlic was right – even a little more would have overpowered it. I also used low-sodium V-8 juice instead of vegetable broth. This is a recipe I plan to use all summer!

    Gazpacho? Not really, but that said, this wasn’t that bad if you’re willing to make it once, then fix it. Careful with the garlic or you drown out the strawberry, but at the same time, you’ll want something to help balance out the strawberry taste as well, I found a little bit of sweet onion did the trick. Consider more vinegar, cut the oil by 1/3, and keep in mind that as ususal, the photo has been doctored to up the red saturation.
