There is nothing like a cool soup to start the summertime outside BBQ Sunday Dinner.
For those who have not experienced or made cool soups - this is the one to try.
14- to 16-ounce can diced or stewed tomatoes, undrained
2/3 large cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
2/3 large green or red bell pepper, cut into chunks
2 bunches scallions, cut into several pieces
Handful of Italian parsley sprigs
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
To finish the soup:
3 cups tomato juice, or as needed
1/3 large cucumber, peeled and finely diced
1/3 large green or red bell pepper, finely diced
2 fresh plum tomatoes, finely diced
1 large carrot, peeled and finely diced
1 medium celery stalk, finely diced
Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon, to taste
1/2 teaspoon Worchester sauce or to taste
2 teaspoons chili powder, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon onion salt, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Place all the ingredients for the soup base in a food processor or blender.
Puree until fairly smooth.
Transfer the puree to a serving container.
Stir in enough tomato juice to give the soup a slightly thick consistency. Add the remaining ingredients.
Stir together, then cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
