Since we are all confined and working from home, many of us have taken this opportunity to learn new hobbies or to practice more of our favorite hobbies. For this reason, from Across Logistics, we encourage you to cook new recipes!! A healthy diet, varied and rich in vitamins is always essential, but in times as exceptional as the one we are living rightnow that health is so important, we must prioritize homemade and nutritious food more than ever!! To all this, we have to add that the good weather is coming and you might prefer fresher food …… there is no doubt that it is the perfect time to prepare a good gazpacho!!
But, of course, surely you will not expect Across Logistics to give you the recipe of the typical gazpacho ….. if we are able to surprise on the professional level, we also do it on the culinary level!!! Today we are going to present you the recipe for TOMATO AND WATERMELON GAZPACHO!!
INGREDIENTS FOR 5-6 PEOPLE:
– 1 kg ripe pear tomato
– 800 gr of watermelon
– virgin olive oil
– salt and pepper
– Philadelphia cream cheese
– clean basil leaves and cut into thin strips
With a knife, mark a cross at the base of the tomatoes and put them in boiling water. When the boil starts again, wait 1 – 1.5 minutes and take them out of the hot water. Put them in cold water. Meanwhile, cut the watermelon into cubes, removing the seeds. Carefully, peel the tomatoes and dice them. Put the watermelon and the tomato in a container suitable for using a minipimer or in the glass of the Thermomix or whatever is most comfortable for you to beat. Add a generous stream of virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and beat it. Taste it and add more salt if it needs it. Pour it into a container using a fine strainer to avoid the pieces of seeds and tomato skin. Leave it in the fridge and wait until it cools down! Once it is very cold, just before serving, prepare the presentation of the dish: In a deep plate, place a big tablespoon of Philadelphia cheese in the middle as if it were an island. Pour the gazpacho around the cheese. Finally decorate it with basil and … et voilà !!! it’s done!! Richer and easier to prepare impossible!!!!
