Gazpacho - Cold vegetable soup

Good and still very healthy. The vegetables are not cooked so all vitamins are preserved.


  • 800g beef tomatoes
  • 150-200 white bread
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2-4 garlic cloves
  • Salt
  • Balsamic vinegar


About 50g of bread and half a tomato dice to be set aside. The remaining small white bread has a dash of oil added. Clove the peeled garlic and press it. Mix the those ingredients and leave for about 30 minutes.
Skin the tomatoes (briefly in boiling water) and half them. Remove the seeds. Then cut roughly. Peel the cucumber and crush, wash the bell peppers and crush them as well.
Mash the vegetables with the bread with an immersion blender or mixer. Pass the resulting mass through a fine sieve.
Taste with a little salt and a little vinegar. Cool in the refrigerator.

Serve the gazpacho with bread and tomato cubes.

Tips and variations

The remaining quantity is delicious as the basis for a sauce. It is easier when you buy tomatoes which are already mashed.
