SPANISH-STYLE GAZPACHO (cold cucumber & tomato soup)

While this recipe takes a little planning in advance, you can’t ask for a more refreshing dish that celebrates the freshest ingredients that are in abundance at this time of year. A delicious way to get more veggies into your diet.

½ loaf of day-old Italian bread
1 red pepper
2 cloves of garlic
2 Tablespoons of salt
2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 ½ Tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
4-6 ripe tomatoes
1 hard boiled egg
¼ cup of onion (Vidalia or other sweet onion) chopped
½ cup of cucumber, chopped with seeds removed
2 cups of ice-cold water
Garnishes: Additional chopped cucumber and/or hard-boiled egg

Soak the Italian bread in water.

Remove the head, seeds and ribs from a red pepper.

In a blender, puree the red pepper with garlic until liquid.

Add salt. (If you want it spicy, you can add a jalapeno pepper here too, seeds & ribs removed.)

While the blender is running, slowly pour in the olive oil, then the balsamic vinegar. Mix well.

Over a colander, squeeze out the bread and, while the blender is running, add it to the pepper mixture until the mixture is thick.

Add the tomatoes and puree.

Add the hard boiled egg, onion and cucumber, and puree.

When all is mixed smoothly, it should be a pretty fine consistency, not chunky but with a slight texture, pour into a bowl with the two cups of very cold water. Chill.

Serve very cold, garnished with chopped egg and/or cucumber in the bowl.
