Fresh tomatoes in abundance means this can happen. Oh dear.
And we lost a day..
- 3 pounds plum tomatoes
- 1 big handful fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons horseradish
- 2 teaspoons tabasco
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon each salt and pepper
- 2 cups vodka
- whole scallions
Puree the tomatoes in batches. I did mine in 4 batches. Do three batches and puree until smooth. When you do the fourth batch, puree with the parsley, leaving it still kind of chunky. Mix the tomatoe puree in a big bowl with the horseradish, tabasco, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour (2/3 cup) over ice into glasses with 1 1/2- 2 ounces of vodka. (You could do 1 ounce, which is normal, but I like my drinks really strong).
It’s like breakfast. Right?
Add a scallion garnish for something to munch on..
Wait til you see what we do with the leftovers.
