This is a refreshing cold summer soup. Be sure to use the freshest and ripest ingredients for best flavour. Serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and crusty bread.
If you don't have a juicer, simply purée the tomatoes in a blender or food processor.
Something else. I prefer to mash tomatoes instead of using the juice. It tastes fresher and there's something satisfying about mashing tomatoes in a colander. I use about 8 largeish tomatoes to make 3 or four modest servings. - 24 Jul 2008
Took shortcuts. Divine! I always use tomato juice in lieu of juicing the tomatoes (I don't have a juice extractor) in this recipe. And for tonight's dinner party I added little prawns. It's delicious, refreshing and GONE way too soon. - 24 Jul 2008
Took shortcuts. This soup is so good, I can barely stand it. I must admit, I cheated a bit. I used shop bought tomato juice...but that bumped up the quickness rating. - 24 Jul 2008
