Adopt a GF Blogger: Flip Cookbook & Sunset Gazpacho (SCD, GFCF)
Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily is hosting "Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger" this month. It's a cool web carnival idea. You "adopt" a gluten-free blogger, then make and post one of their recipes. It's a great way to stop stalking some of these wonderful gf websites, and actually make the recipes.
My adoptees' are Raj and Sonia of Flip Cookbook. I was first aware of their site in May when I was hosting "Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten-Free". Raj submitted Mango Kulfi. I was thrilled to know there was a GF and SCD blog with an Indian flair. I adore Indian food. And the recipes and photos are absolutely gorgeous. Everything looks so crisp and flavorful. It was so hard deciding which recipe to make!
I couldn't resist this recipe for Sunset Gazpacho. I've been wanting to try a gazpacho and this one was so colorful, and mango is a favorite flavor in our home.
The ingredients were mango, orange juice, extra-virgin olive oil, cucumber, bell pepper (I used a red one), onion (I used green onion), garlic, jalapeno (optional), lime juice, basil or cilantro, salt and pepper.
I was surprised how easy it was to make...no cooking! This will be a great recipes to impress company as well, they'll never know you didn't slave over a hot stove. This gazpacho would also be a good first course to a grilled meat or seafood meal.
I'm a big fan of Flip Cookbook. I can't wait to try more recipes. Thanks Raj and Sonia.
