Gazpacho is a cold tomato-based soup that originated in Spain. What better time to enjoy a chilled bowl of gazpacho than on a hot summer day? Use fresh ingredients for the best possible taste.
Here's what you need:
3 cups tomato juice
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 large tomatoes, quartered
1 cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
1 sweet green bell pepper, seeded and quartered
Dash of hot sauce
Fresh ground salt and pepper to taste
2 tomatoes chopped for garnish
2 cucumbers chopped for garnish
Place all of the ingredients, except tomato and cucumber garnish, in a high speed blender. Turn on high speed for 40 seconds.
Chill the soup for 30-60 minutes.
Place chopped cucumber and tomato in each serving dish and fill with soup. Serve immediately.
