My Gazpacho

I love this soup! It’s like a lazy salad in a cup! It’s amazing and so good for you. You can also change/ alter the ingredients to taste and even add chillies if you want.

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 4 ripe good quality tomatoes ( I use vine  tomatoes)
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2 red peppers
  • 2-3 slices stale bread like sourdough or ciabatta
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • a sprinkle of dry oregano
  • a small bunch of flat leaf parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • water

Preparation:

  1. Chop everything roughly as if you are making a salad, into a large bowl. Add the bread in chunks, dress with salt and pepper, oil and vinegar and mix well.
  2. Cover with cold water about 1-2 inches above the veg. Cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  3. Blitz the soup with a blender, adjust the seasoning if needed and serve cold.

Tips:

  • It’s great as a starter or on its own.
  • On hot days you might want to use some ice cubes with the water.
  • For a lighter version don’t put the bread in.
