Gazpacho: Cold Spanish vegetable soup
You will need: 500 g peppers (mixed red and yellow), 500 g cucumber, 400 g tomatoes, 1 onion, 1 garlic, 500 ml tomato juice, 4 slices of toast, 50 ml olive oil, 1 lemon
Here’s how it works: Wash the peppers, clean them, cut them in half, remove the seeds and the white skin inside. Peel, halve and peel the cucumber. Cut the vegetables into small pieces. Put tomatoes in boiling water, leave in a short time, remove, wash and peel. Then a quarter and a seed. Cut the onion and garlic. Dip the toast in some water. Mix all ingredients (chopped vegetables, onions, garlic, tomato quarters, tomato juice, toast) in a blender. Add the juice of the squeezed lemon and olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, plenty of paprika powder and, if you like, some oregano.
Light Summer Cucumber Salad
You will need: 1 cucumber, 1 onion, 2 tablespoons sunflower oil, 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar, salt, pepper, dill
Here’s how it works: Wash the cucumber, peel it to taste and cut it into thin slices, this is best done with a vegetable knife. Peel, wash and finely chop the onion. Chop the dill. Put everything together in a bowl. Prepare marinade from the remaining ingredients, ideally let soak overnight and enjoy cold. If you want, you can vary the salad as needed – it also tastes good with red onions, and fetal cubes add extra pizza.
Pumpkin fries with feta cheese
You will need: 150 g feta cheese, ½ tablespoon grated lemon zest, 150 g flour, 2 eggs, 2 pumpkins, dill, olive oil, peppers.
Here’s how it works: Mix the flour with 200 ml of water, the eggs, peppers to taste, a pinch of salt and pepper to form a smooth dough, preferably with a whisk. Peel and grate the pumpkin, add to the dough with the chopped dill. Heat the oil in a pan, add the pumpkins in small portions to the oil with a teaspoon and fry on both sides until golden brown. Then drain on a kitchen towel. Dissolve the feta cheese and mix in a bowl with the lemon juice, 50 ml water, salt and pepper until creamy. Serve the pumpkin pancakes with the cream – enjoy your meal!
