Wow, I haven't blogged since October....shame shame on me! Been so busy. Then December hit and we lost power, heat, gas for 4 days during a the worst storm up here in Oregon, that I've experienced in a year and a half...I know, I haven't lived here long enough. But still the was a lot of snow. Then had a bad battle with Influenza A and Pneumonia, that I'm just finally getting over. And a very sickly sister down in Mississippi. I'll save the tissues for a different post.

Any way, a couple of weeks ago I made a Traditional Tomato based Gazpacho, which was mighty friend on Facebook Elizabeth aka Maw Slusser, tells me she has a recipe for White Gazpacho...well she tells me in the was made with Cucumbers and I was already hooked. Then I got sick with the flu crud and lost the convo and was searching everywhere for it because I was totally dying to know how to make it. Soo I shout out pleading for it and between Paw Slusser and Maw...... I got it between the 2 of them. She's soo funny. She tells me that she likes to drink it out of a wine glass...I thought was hysterical...Let me tell you, I did the same thing. So here's her recipe. And I'm soo happy to tell you...I loved it. If you are a serious cucumber will love this.
So with out further a-do,

Maw Slusser's White Gazpacho
Your going to need:
6-8 medium Cucumbers
8-12 ounces Sour Cream(I made mine with Tofutti & used all 12oz)
3 TBSP White Distilled Vinegar
1/2 tsp Salt (or adjust more for preferred taste)
1/2 tsp White Pepper (or adjust more for preferred taste)
1 tsp Garlic Powder (or adjust more for preferred taste) & oops this wasn't in the photo.
32 ounce Fat Free, low sodium Chicken Broth
Peel your desired amount of cucumbers, discard peels
Slice cucumbers in half and scoop out seeds, trying to save most of the cucumber meat, discard seeds. See mine aren't that pretty but, that's about how they looked, my seeds were nearly to the flesh.
Chop cucumbers and place into a food processor or blender
Process cucumbers to a puree state
Add 8oz sour cream to start with, I ended up adding all 12 ounces, it's totally about forgiving preference with this recipe. I made mine with Tofutti Sour Cream Replacer an alternative to dairy. I wanted to try the alternative product, 1st time I used it was in this recipe and it was quite nice.
then add 3 TBSP vinegar,
then add 1/2 tsp pepper,
then add 1/2 tsp salt,
and then add 1 tsp garlic powder,
Process to puree again until all is incorporated.
Add in 32oz of chicken broth and blend until all is incorporated. Taste and adjust seasonings, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. And add remaining sour cream if desired....I did ;-)
Serve immediately and store remaining batch in the refrigerator and keep chilled. Will stand in the refrigerator for a couple of days.A fairly simple and fast recipe on the fly.
Makes about 70 plus ounces depending on the amount cucumbers you use. It's refreshing treat for the cucumber lover! And see, I served it too in a wine/cocktail glass. And I absolutely loved this recipe and will be my veggie drink of choice now.

I am so glad you posted this. I saw you getting the recipe on FB and intended to make note of it, but got side tracked. This is right up my alley and will be used regularly come summer. Thanks, Melissa!

Asian, Mexican, Multi-cultured foods, Low-fat, Low-sugar, Stews, casseroles, slow cooker meals and baking......Everything!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Funny but true: Cooking traditions men sit in the recliner and women in the My family is always in the kitchen. My sister and her family, my parents and my family celebrate Christmas in January. Due to distance and work related jobs. Every year we plan what we are having ahead of time. Our tradition is usually food we've had abroad growing up overseas. Normally with Asia influences. It's always a special treat when we normally don't make the dishes often throughout the year.
My cooking triumphs
Unknown to me when I came up with a chicken and dumpling recipe of my own, my father was floored & delighted and told me it tasted just like his mother's.......My mom dropped her jaw because it was better then her's. It's a staple with my husband and kids.
My cooking tragedies
I had found a recipe for a Pretzel Pie(like Pecan Pie), thought it looked good and I didn't follow the recipe when it said unsalted pretzels. I just grabbed the normal stuff with the salt on it, made the pie, and my dad and husband were painting with thrist. And making weird pickle sour expressions, when I realized the pie was over salted. Oopppss! I never made it again.
