Excerpt from a zoomable collage of the ingredients for a Tomato Basil Cheese vegetable smoothie..
I have been experimenting with the blender to make smoothies with a bite. This is another recipe that I dare to release. This smoothie is inspired by the classical Italian tomato basil mozzarella salad. I exchanged the mozzarella for goat cheese and added a bunch of extra ingredients. The final result is a thick paste that you need to dilute with water to get a spicy tomato juice.
Ingredients: 0.8 kg Tomato (pomodoro) + 0.1 kg of fresh Goat Cheese (formaggio di capra) + a handful of Basil (basilico). Furthermore: 1 clove of Garlic (aglio), a few Anchovy (acciuga), 1 handful of green or black Olives without kernels (olive), 1 – 2 tablespoons of Balsamic vinegar (balsamico), Eventual some tomato juice (succo) and/or tomato and hot pepper paste (concentrato).
Preparation: Chop the Tomato fine (Tagliato). Add with the rest of the ingredients and maybe some e4xtra water to the blender (Frullatore). Blend until the desired consistency is reached.
Serving: Cold in a beaker (bicchiere).
