Cucumber Gazpacho

Patagonia Mix, Spice the Sea, Pampa's HerbsCatriel MenendezComment

This refreshing recipe it is really easy to make,  delicious for a summer day and a light starter.  Gazpacho is a cold soup base in vegetables like tomatoes and cucumbers. I have a lot of fun making new versions of this soup.

We will divide the recipe in three because we have 3 different technique in three elements. 

Ingredients:

Cucumber 2 big (cut in coins)

Celery 4 stems (cut small )

Pampa's Herbs 1 tbsp.

Onion 1 small (cut small)

Garlic 1 clove (peeled)

Water 2 cups

Spiced Mango:

Mango 1 ea (cut in cubes)

Patagonia mix 1 teaspoon 

Lemon juice and zest

Clams:

Olive Oil 2 tbsp

Clams 1 lb

White wine 1 cup

Spice the sea 1 tbsp.

Lemon juice 

Method:

Soup:

In a blender place the vegetables, the water, and the spices. Blend until fine, pass the soup through a fine chinoise to remove the big pieces. Taste salt and pepper and chill for half hour in the fridge.

Clams:    

Heat a pot, add the oil and saute the clams. When the clams start to open add the wine and the spices. Evaporate the alcohol and finish the clams with lemon juice. 

Remove from the head and let them cold down, then remove one shelf or both. 

Mango:

Put the mango in a bowl and mix it with Patagonia Mix, lemon zest and juice to taste. Mix well and serve.

In a bowl place, the Gazpacho pre-mixed, the spiced mango and the clams.

Enjoy it really cold with a delicious white wine!
