Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho

Serves 6. Prep time: 20 minutes active; 1 to 3 hours total.

2 pounds ripe heirloom tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 cucumber, seeds removed, roughly chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
1 cup cubed bread (French or rustic bread)
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lime juice
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and black pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients in a blender (in 2 to 3 batches, as everything will not fit into the blender at once). Blend until very smooth. Place in a bowl, stir the blended batches together and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld. Taste for salt and black pepper and serve chilled.
