Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Baguette something crusty and dry
  • 10 medium Tomatoes peeled and quartered
  • 5 small Persian Cucumbers peeled and chopped
  • 1 small Bell Pepper cored
  • 4 cloves Garlic smashed
  • 3 Spring Onion
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil more or less for desired consistency
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper freshly cracked, to taste
  • 1 Avocado optional. This makes it less authentic, but I quite enjoy the creaminess it adds.

Instructions

  • Chop the bread, peel the tomatoes and cucumbers, and then add everything to a big bowl. Give everything a good massage with your bare hands for a few minutes, then let rest for a half hour.
  • Blend. Serve Cold.

Notes

In my opinion this soup is even better the next day, so if you are entertaining you can absolutely make this the day in advance and just store it in your fridge. People may ask your secret...but it's up to you to tell them it's "old".
