Recipe: Apple and Tomato ‘Gazpacho Sauce’

I just realized that I have NOT posted a recipe on DelectablyChic! in ages.  So why not do one now?  I’ve been experimenting with food again recently, and decided to make a soup which can double as a sauce when heated.  All you need are the following:

Chopped Apples and Veggies, gazpacho, gazpacho soup, sauce, pasta, protein, grilled cheese

This is the size you want the apples, onions and tomatoes at

  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 a medium to large onion (any kind)
  • 2-3 tomatoes (any kind)
  • 1 whole apple
  • black pepper, dried basil and dried oregano (you can be as light or liberal as you want)
  • Optional:  Tomato purée

Pureed Apples and Veggies, gazpacho, gazpacho soup, sauce, pasta, protein, grilled cheese

This is the consistency you want the sauce at

Instructions:

  1. Chop garlic, onions, apples and tomatoes (the latter three should be in bite sized pieces) and place into a chopper or food processor.  If the machine is small, do half at a time.
  2. Add pepper, basil and oregano and tomato purée (if using)
  3. Blend/pulse/chop at a higher speed (I used level 12 on my machine) until the items are resemble gazpacho and move everything into a bowl or airtight container, depending on when you plan to use it

The above recipe should make about two to 2 1/2 cups of sauce.  You could have it straight up, like a gazpacho or use it on proteins, pasta or for grilled cheese sandwiches – either cooked or cold.  I topped mine with cheddar cheese (which is why there is 1/2 cup of shredded cheese in the first image) and used it to make baked tofu.  I would highly recommend this for turkey breast or pork chops.   The sauce should last a few days chilled.
