Classic Spanish Gazpacho
1/2 cup stale bread, soaked in water
4 large heirloom tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic , minced
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Squeeze the water from the bread. In large bowl, place squeezed bread and all remaining ingredients.
2. Use an immersion blender to blend all together until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning.
3. Refrigerate until cold.
Serve with chopped cucumbers, peppers and/or avocado on top. You can go really gourmet here by using some of the tomatoes in colors other than red. Golden tomato gazpacho is lovely, so is black tomato gazpacho.
