Antioxidants? The Plant Medicine solution: save $$$$, live forever, enjoy!

Well not maybe forever but this is living life to the full, and as healthy a way of getting flavonoids, lycopenes, procyanidins, anthocyanidins, vitamin C, oleic acid, and the numerous other agents we now know have important cancer, cardiovascular and other disease preventing properties. This will give you all the antioxidants you will need for days; it is within most household budgets; it is a Spanish gift and it is all plant medicine!

This works best when the outside temperature is above 30C (90F) and you are eating on a shaded porch.

To make the gazpacho take eight large tomatoes (preferably peeled),  half a small cucumber, half a small onion, a sweet pepper, as much garlic as you can take, a tablespoonful of extra virgin olive oil, three teaspoonfuls of wine vinegar, juice of one lemon and salt (to taste and replace the electrolytes lost in the heat).

Put all in a blender and render into a cold soup. Put in fridge to chill.

Chop into fine cubes: one large tomato, section of cucumber, an avocado, half a sweet red onion, some red sweet pepper, a hard boiled egg. Toast and cut wholemeal slices of bread as croutons.

Add the chilled soup to large soup bowls that have been put in the freezer for 10 minutes. Add three ice cubes. Sprinkle the chopped items and croutons liberally on the soup and enjoy with a glass of red wine, preferably Spanish Rioja - frio (from the fridge).

 

 

For the winter version check this site in November (for those of you in the the tropics and the southern hemisphere we will keep this recipe here forever).
