Tomato and Yellow Pepper Gazpacho


Serves 6

I know what you’re thinking – cold soup deal is a foo-foo dainty little thing that belongs at an old ladies garden party. Wrong – it’s big and bold and full of flavor and deserves to be made.


  • 2 yellow peppers, seeded & cut into big chunks
  • 4 medium ripe tomatoes, seeded and quartered
  • 2 reg cucumbers (not the long English ones), peeled & seeded
  • 1 medium yellow onion, in big chunks
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce, I like Cholula
  • 1 large bunch Cilantro
  • 5 ounces tomato juice or Bloody Mary mix
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. The key is to blend everything, so if you can fit everything in a processor or blender the first time, go ahead and blend until still a bit chunky
  2. If you need to do it in 2 shifts, do that – eventually everything will fit for a final blend, but don’t blend it too perfect
