Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 kg very ripe tomatoes diced

  • 1 green pepper deseeded and diced
  • 1 medium cucumber peeled and diced (remove most of the seeds)
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 150 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 100 g slightly stale crusty white bread
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 chopped red chillie or ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper if extra spiciness preferred
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Place the bread in a small bowl and pour the water over. Set aside for 5 minutes to soak. Use your hands to squeeze out any excess moisture from the bread. Place the bread in the bowl of a large food processor or blender.

  • Blitz until smooth and add the salt, pepper, and vinegar to your taste
  • Sieve the mixture through a medium sieve and chill in the fridge overnight

Notes

Be daring! Serve the gazpacho in a glass teapot and pour into shot glasses. It looks stunning and creates a fun atmosphere for a dinner party as a starter.
Add frozen grapes to the infusion container in the glass teapot to keep the gazpacho icy cold without diluting it.
