Jennifer Cornbleet's Gazpacho

Gazpacho (from Raw Food Made Easy by Jennifer Cornbleet) - Serves 1.

2 1/2 roma tomatoes, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 green onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 T chopped fresh parsley
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t crushed garlic (1 clove)
1/4 t salt
Dash black pepper
Dash cayenne
1/2 ripe avocado, diced, for garnish (optional)

Place everything except the avocado in a food processor, and pulse until blended but still chunky. Refrigerate or serve right away. Garnish with avocado.

Notes: I always use avocado, and I use 1 large tomato instead of 2 roma tomatoes when I'm out of romas. This serves 1 person, I double the recipe for my husband and me. I tried once with 1 small orange pepper (instead of half a large pepper) and my DH said it was the best gazpacho he ever had so far. It's funny, last summer I tried several lengthy gazpacho recipes with ingredients like sherry that I had bought specially for the occasion, and they weren't very successful. I try a simple raw one, and it's a success

Oh yay! You must know by now that I'm a sucker for soups. This one sounds simpler than other gazpacho recipes I've come upon. I was wondering as well if it would work with 'regular' toms but I see that you've already tried it. On my 'to make list' as soon as I get settled in my new (very sunny) kitchen.

Oh, I just reread your notes, Velvet and need clarification. Do you throw the avo along with the rest in the fp or just use it as garnish as Jennifer suggests?

As garnish
I love the contrast of the finely chopped soup with the creamy avocado cubes.
I also serve it right after I make it, because I prefer room temperature soups to cold soups (and I don't have to remember to make it a few hours in advance!).

This soup is so yummy! I had to use grape tomatoes and there were a lot of skins but the flavor was so delish.
