Tomato and fresh coriander gazpacho recipe:

For this tomato gazpacho recipe, we use coriander but we can also replace it with basil.

  • Start by washing the tomatoes
  • Plunge the tomatoes in boiling water for a few seconds
  • Peel the tomatoes
  • Remove the seeds if there are any.
  • Cut the tomatoes into small cubes
  • Chop half of the cilantro (about 10 leaves)
  • Chop the garlic

Then you have to put all the ingredients in a small bowl (tomato, coriander, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and tabasco) in order to marinate.

  • We will leave this preparation to marinate for 6 to 12 hours (this step is not essential but allows the aromas and flavors to be better mixed)
  • We then put everything in the blender
  • We rectify with salt and pepper
  • Leave to rest for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • It is served in verrines or even in soup plates if it is a starter.

As a decoration we use the remaining coriander leaves and possibly small diced tomatoes that you have kept.

  • It can be served with small toasted toasts lightly flavored with garlic.

Enjoy your meal !
