    1. Peel the tomatoes: Make a cross on top of tomatoes with a paring knife and plunge into salted boiling water for about 30 seconds, then plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Remove skins, cut into quarters and remove seeds.
    2. Put tomatoes, cucumber, all of the peppers, onion and garlic in a blender and mix well. Add olive oil and season to taste, then add water and lemon juice and blend again. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

    Tip

    If gazpacho is too liquidy for your taste you can add 1 or 2 slices of bread and blend with soup mixture in blender, to thicken.

    Cherry peppers

    Cherry peppers are found in jars in some larger supermarkets and add just a bit of heat. Peppadew brand peppers are a good alternative. In a pinch, you can omit these all together or add a small amount of fresh red chilli to taste.
