Gazpacho Soup


Gazpacho (Spanish Tomato Soup)

Are you tired of eating salads? Overrun with tomatoes? Try this! It’s yummy!

3 pounds of tomatoes, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 large or 2 small green bell peppers, diced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or other vinegar
1 slice white bread, crust cut off, saturated with cold water
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tablespoon hot-pepper sauce
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

In a blender or food processor, puree the tomatoes, onion, and peppers (each separately) until smooth. In a large bowl, combine the processed vegetables, add the remaining ingredients, and stir to blend. Set the soup aside for 30 minutes to an hour to allow the flavors to marry. Serve cold.

  1. I love all the ingredients (except the hot pepper). However, I’ve never tried to make this soup because I’m not interested in going to the trouble to make something that must be eaten cold. Maybe I should try making it and not follow the last instruction?
