We are already in the middle of summer, enjoying or suffering, depending on the point of view, from the high temperatures and our palate asks only for fresh and light things. Of course we need to hydrate ourselves very often to help our body fight the heat and the disorders typical of this time of year such as dehydration and heat stroke. Therefore, the diet must include a lot of liquid intake, obviously a lot of water among others and alternate foods and dishes rich in water. Cold and light soups are therefore the most appetizing and suitable alternatives, as well as all kinds of summer salads. They are healthy, nutritious and also very tasty. Are you in? Then take a pencil and paper…
The most difficult thing about this recipe is its name! Because it is very simple to prepare and is delicious when cold.

We clean the leeks well, make a previous cross incision on the greenest end and wash it well under the tap. Remove the first outer layer and use the rest. For the recipe we will use the whitest part of the leek.
Cut the white part in In the premises of Enrique Tomás when someone says the word.... Wash and peel the potatoes and chop them up.
Fry the leek in the butter over a very low heat so that it does not take on any colour. When it is soft, add the potatoes and the chicken broth. If you are a vegetarian you can do it with vegetable broth or water. We will turn up the heat and let it cook for 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Then we will beat everything and when it cools down a little, we will add the liquid cream.
Finally, strain through a fine sieve to remove any remaining leek skin. If we want to take it very cold, we will put it in the fridge and when it is ready we will serve it in a bowl or a glass to drink it.

We chop up all the ingredients and put them in the blender. Add the oil, water and sherry vinegar. It is not necessary to peel the tomatoes or the pepper because we will then pass it through the fine sieve.
Once the gazpacho has been crushed, pass it through the fine sieve, pressing it well with a spoon so that it is a fine cream without any skin or seeds. We put it in a container in the fridge for a couple of hours so that it is very cold before drinking it.
We can accompany it with some fried bread croutons and the same ingredients cut into small cubes. Or, none of that, and we serve it just with some shavings of Serrano ham sprinkled on top. If you choose this way, you’d better reduce the salt among the ingredients. Delicious Iberian touch!
