½ red onion, chopped
2 Tbsp Capirete Pedro Ximenéz sherry vinegar
2 cloves Pons sweet white garlic
2 Tbsp El Navarrico sliced piquillo pimientos
1 jar Sabato basil pasta sauce
1 cup water
½ cup diced cucumber, for garnish
Añana spring salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Fresh basil, to garnish
25g sliced pancetta stagionata, for garnish (optional)
Marinate onion in 1 Tbsp of sherry vinegar and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
If using pancetta, lay them on a lined baking tray and cook in a preheated oven at 180° for 5-10 minutes or until crispy. Set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the basil pasta sauce in a saucepan over low heat. Add piquillo pimientos, sweet white garlic, marinated onions, water and 1 Tbsp sherry vinegar. Stir and season to taste. Continue to cook for approximately 15 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.
Once cooled, pour the gazpacho into a blender, and blend until desired consistency.
Serve chilled in individual portions garnished with cucumber, crispy pancetta and fresh basil leaves.
