Gazpacho is one of the best antioxidant recipes your body can benefit from. This recipe is from Spain where they eat gazpacho mostly in summer as a cold, refreshing soup. But I eat it hot or cold...either way it is delicious.

The main ingredient are tomatoes which are foods high in antioxidants such as lycopene. You will need few ripe tomatoes, a quarter of onion, 1 small cucumber, 1 small chilli,  half garlic clove, 4 or 5 spoons of vinegar, 4 spoons of olive oil and salt. Liquidise all these ingredients together until smooth. Place it in the fridge until the gazpacho is cold. Serve in a bowl and enjoy. You can add more onion, garlic or vinegar if you like the flavour to be stronger.

Ingredients for 4-6 patties

1 cup buckwheat
2 cups water
Some yeast-free vegetable stock

3 small carrots
1 small onion
1/2 red bell pepper
Fresh parsley / spices to taste
2 tbsp spelt flour or buckwheat flour
                                                                  2 tbsp oil (preferably cold pressed extra virgin olive oil)

  1. Bring buckwheat with water and vegetable stock (and some salt) to boil. Cook for approx. 15 minutes until water is gone (don't burn it!).
  2. Meanwhile cut onion and bell pepper into small pieces and shred carrots. Put everything in a bowl.
  3. Add the cooked buckwheat and season with spices and flour. Stir.
  4. Form 4-6 patties, put olive oil in a pan and roast the patties gently (from both sides) until golden brown.
  5. Tip: Each time you make the patties use different veggies until you find your perfect combination.
  6. Eat fresh alkalzing salads with the patties.
