Ana Borrajo's Gazpacho Andaluz

Ana Borrajo of Sapna Cafe has lived in Phoenix long enough to know that come July we are ready for something, anything cool. Her recipe for Gazpacho Andaluz definitely hits the spot! It's healthy, it's simple, and you don't even have to turn on the stove.

Mix all together in food processor adding some water. Pass through a chinese colander if you like it smooth. Chill for an hour. Serve by the glass or in a soup bowl, adding small dices of tomato, cucumber, onion, bread and boiled egg.
