Fast and fresh heirloom tomato gazpacho
Using a blender will make this soup easy to pull off in minutes. Good for two bowls of soup, or four smaller appetizer portions.
- 6 medium-large tomatoes, or equivalent
- 2 cloves garlic
- salt and pepper
- 2 bell peppers
- 1 avocado
- 1 dried out slice of bread (optional)
Put the two cloves of garlic in the blender and pulse just to break it up a bit. Cut the tomatoes into quarters or eighths and blend with the garlic until smooth (with bread if you are using it – it will thicken the soup). Add salt and pepper if you like, though the tomatoes may have enough flavor without it. Serve topped with fresh diced peppers and avocado.
