Gazpacho is a very satisfying traditional soup of Spanish origins made with peppers, tomatoes, cucumber. It is a very famous soup in many regions of the world and cannabis can be used to make this famous soup even better. The recipes used for making gazpacho may differ a bit across different climes but the principle majorly remains the same and cannabis is introduced using extra virgin oil.
Depending on the quantity to be produced, the quantity of the ingredients to be used is subject to change but we will be looking to a bowl of gazpacho that can serve 4 people.
2 bell peppers
6 ripe tomatoes
1 mild chili
Cannabis-infused virgin oil
Dark sherry vinegar
Making Cannabis-infused Olive Oil
The first and most important process that makes this soup unique is making the cannabis-infused olive oil which eventually is a critical ingredient of the soup.
The cannabis is first decarboxylated to activate the cannabinoids. This is done by placing the cannabis in a baking sheet and putting it in an oven at 120 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes.
The decarboxylated cannabis is then introduced into a mason jar with three- quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil and mixed properly.
The oil is cooked to ensure infusion by placing the mason jar containing the cannabis and olive oil on a water bath for about one hour while stirring at intervals.
The cooked cannabis-infused olive oil is then passed through a mesh sieve to strain before it is passed through a cheesecloth.
Making Cannabis-infused Gazpacho
Once the cannabis-infused extra virgin olive oil, the next step is to move into preparing the soup full on.
First, the veggies are prepared by chopping the peppers, chili, and onions while the garlic is used whole. To avoid the characteristic aftertaste of garlic, the inner germ of the clove can be removed. The bread is sliced into smaller cubes in order to be able to increase the mass of the soup being prepared.
The veggies and bread are all introduced into the blender and blended thoroughly. Vinegar, water, and necessary seasonings are then added to the blender alongside the prepared cannabis-infused extra virgin oil. A given quantity of cannabis-infused virgin oil should be kept to be used to garnish the soup.
The mixture is blended sufficiently and the soup is refrigerated to keep cool for about 30 minutes.
Garnishing the Gazpacho
It would not be a gazpacho if the soup is not properly garnished as the garnishing makes the soup more special and pleasing. The garnishing area is where everyone can show dexterity and sort of go with what pleases one best.
Garnishing can be done by using some of the veggies used for preparing the soup initially, the cucumber, tomatoes, and pepper can be sliced and chopped properly to complement the soup. The reserved cannabis-infused virgin oil is added as well to further increase the appeal of the soup with a drizzle.
Spicing the Gazpacho
Gazpacho can still be made to be even more special depending on how far you are willing to go to get the perfect soup. The spicing of the gazpacho is one thing that can separate an ordinary gazpacho from one that is top-notch. Different varieties of herbs such as rosemary and thyme can easily be incorporated and unique varieties of tomatoes and pepper can bring much-needed taste and flavor to the soup.
All of this further stresses the fact that the quality of the final dish depends on how far you are willing to go during the preparation. Cover all bases while preparing and sit back to enjoy one of the best edible on God’s green earth.
