Cucumber and White Grape Gazpacho

Cucumber and White Grape Gazpacho

Gazpacho is the perfect summer soup–it’s light and cool, deliriously healthy, takes advantage of summer produce, and is a snap to make. If only I weren’t so completely sick of it. Enter Matthew Kenney, of New York chef fame and raw food wonders. In his latest raw recipe book Everyday Raw (Gibbs Smith, 2008) he has a wonderfully tricky way with gazpacho–one that involves cucumber, white grapes, a bunch of ginger juice, and not much else. This makes me very happy. This recipe serves two, and can be doubled to serve more if desired.

2 cups peeled, seeded, and diced cucumbers
2 cups seeded and diced tomatillos
2 cups diced white grapes
1/4 cup ginger juice
Salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste

1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl; season to taste.

2. Place three-fourths of the mixture in a food processor and process until smooth.

3. Put it back in the bowl with remaining fruit and vegetables and stir to combine. Serve chilled.
