Make the most of summer and avoid sweating in the kitchen by making heat-free foodstuffs to eat chilled.
Gazpacho: Summer soup eaten cold.
1kg of tomatoes
4 inches of cucumber
a handful of chives
a clove of garlic
a couple of glugs of olive oil
a splash of white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
Blend and fully chill.
Coffee ice lollies: these ones without milk, though milk reportedly works well too.
Make a mug of strong and sweet coffee, then freeze in moulds.
By far my favourite of these frozen stuffs.
Summer Cooler Cubes: a weird combination of savoury ingredients to put in a glass of water? A very refreshing combination.
