Simply Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a vegetable soup that is made with fresh tomatoes. 

I used canned diced tomatoes, but you can use fresh tomatoes if desired instead.


4 c. ( 2 cans) diced tomatoes
1 clove garlic (crushed and chopped)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
1/2 cucumber chopped
1/ 8 c. green onion chopped
1 each: roma tomato chopped, onion choppef, bell pepper chopped
1/2 tsp. diced jalapeno pepper (optional)

1/8 - 1/4 c. olive oil

1 T. red wine vinegar

Trim ends from and cut cucumber in half lengthwise, chop and place in blender.

Rinse, prepare remaining vegetables and add to blender too. 

Open up canned tomatoes, add to vegetables. 

Add vinegar to blender.

Turn on blender to purée for 15 - 20 sec or until blended.

Remove lid from blender, add oil.

 Blend soup for 15 - 20 seconds more until smooth.

Pour soup into a clean serving bowl and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Makes 4 servings.
