Foodie Friday - Carrot Gazpacho


 

In keeping with cool summer soups, how about cold carrot gazpacho? I was at the farmers market recently and saw these amazing carrots and fresh ginger, I thought of cold carrot soup. 

2 - oversized carrots about 1 pound

1 small Onion

2 stalks of celery 

1 medium tomato 

cucumber - about 1 cup chopped

Fresh Ginger - about 1 inch chunk 

splash of white wine vinegar 

splash of maple syrup 

salt and pepper 

dash of hot sauce 

1/2 cup water

Peel and chunk the carrots, and steam until tender, about 20-minutes.  Chill. 

Chop veggies into medium chunks, liquify with a stick blender, blender of food processor.  Adjust spice to taste.  Chill, serve cold.  It is a little sweet, the hot sauce added some depth of flavor. My first attempt turned out a bit thick, you can thin with water to a more soup like consistency.  Again, filled with flavor and fresh veggies, and cool on a hot summer day.
