David Beckmann's Gazpacho Recipe

Bread for the World members and the anti-hunger, anti-poverty community know our friend David Beckmann as a tireless anti-hunger advocate who heads a very effective advocacy organization.

But few us knew much about David's culinary skills. But thanks to the International Justice Mission, which posts a Recipe for Change in its blog every week, we now hav David's gazpacho recipe.    

The Recipe for Change campaign features a tomato recipe from a guest contributor, to bring awareness to the issue of slavery in America’s tomato fields. Join us this summer in taking action to establish a zero-tolerance policy for slavery and other serious abuses on Florida’s tomato farms   Ask major supermarket chains to endorse the Fair Food Program
My version cuts out the bread (no carbs!) included in traditional gazpacho. I use apple cider vinegar and fresh tomatoes from the farmers market. This gazpacho takes 20-30 minutes to prepare.  It takes me 30 minutes since I prefer to take out the tomato and cucumber seeds first. If you want a traditional gazpacho, I refer you to my good friend Mark Bittman’s cookbook, How to Cook Everything.*”  – David Beckmann
Okay, now that you know about David's recipe, perhaps you want to give it a go at making his version of this this typical dish from southern Spain.  Click here to see the recipe in the ICJ blog.
