How to make zucchini gazpacho
Soak the bread with a little vinegar. We wash the zucchini well and chop it without peeling it. We put it in the blender glass with pepper, onion, cucumber, garlic clove and basil leaves. Add the bread and beat until you have a very fine cream.
We take a splash of oil and a little salt, beat and test to rectify vinegar, oil or salt until it is to our liking. We store in the refrigerator so that it is very cold at the time of eating. To serve it, we chop the hard-boiled eggs and cut the tomatoes into thin slices and put a little of both in the bowls with the gazpacho, finally we water it with a thin trickle of oil.
