With all the different varieties of delicious juicy tomatoes available right now, I was inspired to make a cool and light gazpacho. There are infinite ways you could make #gazpacho as it is simply a cold soup made out of raw veggies, generally with a tomato base. I used what I had on hand and topped it with a basil cream sauce.

1/2 shallot 

1/2 cucumber 

Juice of half a lemon

Blend in blender and serve.

Basil Cream Sauce
