Green Gazpacho

This cold soup is amazing! The flavor is so complex – Ottolenghi knocks it out of the park.

2 celery sticks (including the leaves)
2 small green peppers, deseeded
6 mini cucumbers
3 slices stale white bread, crust removed
1 jalapeno
4 garlic cloves
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 c walnuts, lightly toasted
6 c baby spinach
1 c basil leaves
1/4 cp arsley
4 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 c olive oil
3 tbsp Greek yogurt
2 c water
9 oz ice cubes
2 tsp salt
Pepper

Roughly chop up the celery, peppers, cucumbers, bread, chilli and garlic. Place in a blender and add the sugar, walnuts, spinach, basil, parsley, vinegar, oil, yogurt, most of the water, half the ice cubes, the salt and some white pepper.

Blitz the soup until smooth. Add more water, if needed, to get your preferred consistency. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning.

Lastly, add the remaining ice and pulse once or twice, just to crush it a little.

Serve cold.
Serves 6.

Serve at once, with the croutons.
