14 May Easy Tomato Gazpacho Soup
This is a great soup for the summer. You don’t even have
to turn on the stovetop. You can serve it as an appetizer
for Shabbat or an easy weekday meal with some crusty bread.
2 large tomatoes,
1 large cucumber, peeled,
1 onion, peeled and halved
1 bell pepper, seeded and
24 oz. tomato juice, divided
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
a few dashes of hot sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
Blend 1 tomato, 1/2 of the
cucumber, 1/2 of the onion, 1/4
of the bell pepper and 1/2 cup
of the tomato juice in a blender until smooth.
Transfer to a bowl and add remaining tomato juice and the
olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Cover and chill for 2 or more hours in the refrigerator.
Dice the remaining veggies and refrigerate separate from the soup. Stir in garlic and chopped
veggies before serving. Sprinkle with chives and serve cold.
Leftovers keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
