A hearty and filling gazpacho recipe that even the guys will love, made by Molly at Kitchen 2.0, a food blog devoted entirely to delicious meals that are also ALWAYS low-sodium, low-saturated fat, low-calorie, and high in fiber and complex carbs. This recipe was inspired by a gazpacho recipe by Mollie Katzen at the Moosewood Restaurant, but it has been altered and changed over the years, and is far enough away from her recipe that we now call it our own.

What You'll Need
large white onion
jar of low-sodium vegetable juice or tomato juice
cloves of garlic
large bunch curly parsley
Mince garlic and parsley. Chop vegetables into pieces about 1/2" in size.
Put everything into a large bowl. Juice the lemons and add to mixture. Stir well.
Divide 1/2 of mixture, in and place in a separate container, like a large pitcher. Pour half the vegetable juice into the container, the other half into the large bowl. Mix both well.
Place the chopping blade in a food processor. Pour the mixture from the pitcher into food processor and pulse for 3-5 seconds, about 5 times. The mixture should be evenly chopped, like a thick salsa. Pour the mixture back into the bowl with the chopped vegetables. Mix well, and serve!
