Gazpacho

Anyone else still have tomatoes coming out of their ears?

My version of gazpacho is easy, delicious, and great for you.  I make it early in the week and then it is perfect to have for lunch or a light dinner.

I just chunk up all of the veggies and bread, plop them in a blender, and then run the whole thing thru a food mill to get out the tomato skins, cucumber seeds, and anything else that would make it now smooth.

I also like to chopped up some extra cucumber and red bell pepper into a small dice to give the soup a little heft.

But that is totally optional.  The gazpacho of just a good without it.
