Recipe: White gaspacho

Cold soups with herbs
July 21, 2008

Chili Pepper FilesI'm planning my 2009 cultivation, keeping track of the chili-experience, under the logo Chili Pepper Files. Please consider these as personal judgements.

Hungarian Yellow Wax pepper is an Annuum chili pepper, red when ripe, but it's better harvested unripe, when it's wax-like colour.

I like gaspacho, but I wanted to create a variant version: the colour should be different too, so these pale yellow pods were perfect.

White gaspacho

Serves four:
2 cucumbers
1 apple
2 white onions
2 yellow hot chilies
4 tbsp. garlic vinegar
2 tbsp. olive oil

Cut the onion in slices and bake in preheated 200° C (392 F) oven 15 minutes.
Meanwhile peel the cucumbers and the apple and put them in the food processor.
Add the onions, chilies, vinegar, olive oil and six ice cubes, then blend the gaspacho.
Serve immediately or refrigerate before serving.
