Gazpacho series: "Gazpacho Rojo" Red Gazpacho

At last the warmer days have come! The weather is perfect for a refreshing, revitalizing, delicious and marvelous GAZPACHO. There are many kinds of gazpachos in Spain (I know at least 4),  I'm going to start this series with the most famous one, the Red Gazpacho. Here it goes!
You need:
  • 12 Ripped Tomatoes (peeled and cut into pieces)
  • Half Red Capsicum (peeled and cut into pieces)
  • Half Green Capsicum (peeled and cut into pieces)
  • 1 Long Cucumber (peeled and cut into pieces)
  • 2 or 3 Cloves of Garlic
  • A Handful of the soft part of white bread, soaked (Optional)
  • Sherry Vinegar or White Wine Vinegar or Apple Vinegar to taste
  • 100 Ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Approx. 300 Ml of cold water
  • Ice cubes
Topping
  • Diced Cucumber
  • Diced Capsicum
  • Diced hard-boiled Egg (Not for vegans)
  • Jamón Serrano, cut into strips  (Not for Vegans, Vegetarians)
  • Croutons
  • Spring Onion
  • Etc
  Put the ingredients in a pot and mix them with a blender, then add the water and ice cubes and mix well.
It can't be easier and it's just delicious, refreshingly perfect for a hot summer day.
P.D. This is a perfect recipe for Vegans, just don't add any egg nor Jamón Serrano :-)
