Claire's Classic Gazpacho

Too hot for soup? Not if you make Claire's Classic Gazpacho! The nutrition facts were made at Calorie Count!

Fresh picked tomatoes are perfect for soup!
Claire’s Classic Gazpacho

(Makes 4 servings)

2 cups tomatoes, peeled, seeded chopped
1 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded, chopped
1 cup green peppers, seeded, chopped
1/4 cup onion, red, chopped
2 cloves garlic
2 cups tomato juice
1/4 cup vinegar, red wine
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1peppers, jalapeno (optional)


Place half the vegetables and all the garlic & parsley in a blender or food processor*, with the tomato juice & vinegar, and puree.

Add the rest of the chopped vegetables and pulse to finely chop.

If a thicker soup is desired, add some cubes of crusty bread before pureeing. If you like it chunkier, don't run the processor quite so much.

Chill before serving.

*No food processor? No problem! Put the ingredients in a large pot and blend with an immersion blender.
