  1. In a food processor blend together the tomatoes, onion, pepper, cucumber, garlic, olive oil, bread (squeeze out the water just before using), vinegar, sugar, and chili, if using. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving and thin with ice water, if necessary.
  2. Serve with your choice of garnish or arrange the garnish in small bowls at the table and allow guests to choose their own.
  • If eggs are tolerated, a little very finely chopped hard-boiled egg is an attractive garnish.
  • Watch out for chili, since some people can't tolerate it. Omit if in any doubt.


Gluten free also dairy, egg, & nut free: Follow the recipe for dairy, egg & nut free; Gazpacho, but use a gluten-free bread roll and substitute gluten-free croûtons to garnish, if using.
