Golden Gazpacho

  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 3h

6 servings, 1 generous cup each

Inspired by Spanish pureed gazpachos, this golden-yellow one is based on an idea of Greg Parks's at the Four Columns Inn in Newfane, Vermont.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

ingredients

  • 1 large orange or yellow bell pepper
  • 3 1/2 pounds yellow or orange tomatoes, peeled (see tip) and cored, divided
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2-3 red or green jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced, for garnish (optional)
  • Tip: To peel tomatoes: Make a small X in the bottom of each tomato and plunge into boiling water until the skins are slightly loosened, 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water for 1 minute. Peel with a paring knife, starting at the X.

directions

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat the broiler.

Place the bell pepper on a baking sheet and broil, turning every 4-5 minutes, until the skin is blackened and blistered on all sides, 20-25 minutes. Transfer the pepper to a bowl, cover and let steam until the skin is loosened, about 10 minutes. Uncover; when cool enough to handle, remove the skin. Discard the stem, seeds and ribs.

Place the roasted pepper and half the tomatoes in a blender; add the onion and oil and puree until smooth. Transfer to a large metal bowl. Puree the remaining tomatoes until smooth and add to the bowl; stir to combine. Refrigerate the gazpacho until chilled, at least 2 hours. Season with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with jalapenos, if desired.
