No-cook Gazpacho

Delicious cold soup that doesn’t require any cooking, that’s simplicity.  And it means all the goodness of the vegetables is retained.

It’s one of those chuck-it-all-in recipes I’m so fond of.  Just chop the vegetables into large chunks so they’re easier to process.

Ingredients:

500g tomatoes, chopped and seeded
500ml tomato juice
1 tbsp tomato purée
4” chunk of cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
Slice of bread, torn into pieces
2tbsp red wine vinegar
2tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper and chili flakes to taste

Simply puree all the ingredients together until smooth.  Transfer to a large bowl and chill for at least a couple of hours.

Serve with toasted croutons. Top with finely chopped spring onions.

Refreshing and nutritious
