I love gazpacho, especially in the summertime when my body craves cooling, raw foods. And I love making it, not only because I get to control what goes in it, but also because it means that I'm embracing whole, raw foods in a low-energy "cooking" kind of way.
Why raw foods? Heating can actually change the makeup of food so that some of the beneficial enzymes and nutrients are destroyed. Some believe that cooked foods may lose up to 85% of their nutritional value.
Why low energy? In general, we all consume a lot of energy throughout our house. We run dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, TVs, microwaves... and that's just the beginning. I love to make things that involve very little energy. This one requires only a good chopping block, a sharp knife, a compost bowl and a big bowl in which to mix all the tasty ingredients. Mix some up tonight and enjoy it for the next few days...the flavors will only get better with a little time.
Use organic ingredients as much as possible in this recipe. Read More
