A classic Spanish soup with all the flavors of summer! With a few delicious twists, this soup also makes a fabulous Bloody Maria.
5 large tomatoes, skinned and seeded, cut into chunks
¼ cucumber diced
Half a medium yellow onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small clove of garlic
½ teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
Chopped scallion, chives, or your favorite fresh herbs for garnish
Place all ingredients together in a blender and whiz until smooth. Chill the soup and serve topped with chopped scallions, chives, or a sprig of your favorite herbs.
For the Maria, to 3 ounces of the chilled soup add a shake of Tabasco, a dash of vegan Worcestershire sauce, a bit of horseradish, a squeeze of fresh lemon, a few grinds of black pepper and 1 ounce of vodka. Enjoy!
