Weekend recipe from TV presenter Marika Kravtsova: tomato and strawberry gazpacho
Under the hashtag of TV presenter Maria Kravtsova, #HappyRecipesMariki are the most unusual dishes we’ve ever seen. Recently, for example, Marika shared an idea of how to add some strawberry flavor to gazpacho soup. The combination of tomatoes and strawberries seems rather strange, but it looks very appetizing in the photo.
“Gazpacho is a traditional cold soup from my beloved Spain. Simple, aromatic and refreshing. In the heat, when you least want to stand by the stove – perfect! – noted Marika. – I also love classic gazpacho, but more – with an unusual combination for us with strawberries.
- 2 small sweet tomatoes
- 3 cucumbers
- 1 small bell pepper
- half shallots (optional)
- 1/2 kg strawberries
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 sprigs of thyme
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- Salt pepper⠀
In a blender, combine tomatoes, strawberries, two cucumbers, garlic, shallots.
Add salt, pepper, vinegar, olive oil, thyme, and half a glass of water to the resulting mass. Whisk again in a blender until smooth. Cut the remaining cucumber and strawberries for garnish.
Pour the soup into nice bowls with sliced cucumber and strawberries on top. You can also garnish the dish with a sprig of thyme and drizzle with a drop of oil.
“And it would be great if the soup stood in the refrigerator before serving, so that it was brewed and was refreshingly cold,” advised Marika.
