  • blender
  • sieve


  • 4 tomatoes large ripe ones, I used a mix of tomatoes on the vine and plum tomatoes
  • 220 gr cucumber peeled
  • 1/4 onion
  • 60 gr green pointed pepper green sweet Italian pointed pepper (you can also use the red sweet pointed pepper)
  • 1 slice bread use only the white part, no crust
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 200 ml water
  • 2 tbl spoon olive oil
  • 1 tbl spoon vinegar I used white vinegar, but wine vinegar is also possible. I don't like too much vinegar (which they sometimes use liberally in a restaurant)
  • salt


  • Remove the skin from the tomatoes. (You can do this easily if you blanch them for a minute in boiling water). Cut them into rough pieces.
  • Remove the seeds from the pepper and cut into pieces. Peel the cucumber and cut into pieces as well as the onion.
  • Remove the crust from the slice of bread.
  • Now add everything together in the blender: tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber, onion, bread, garlic, water, olive oil, vinegar and a pinch of salt.
  • Blend everything for a few minutes to a fine soup. Taste and if desired you can add an extra dash of vinegar or some salt.
  • This soup is often drunk in the summer in a glass, so we're going to pour it through a sieve. With the back of a ladle and circular movements you can push the pulp through the sieve. This way, larger pieces will remain in the sieve.
  • Pour the soup into a bottle or pitcher, refrigerate and serve cold.
  • To provide some extra garnish, I cut an extra piece of cucumber and pepper into very fine pieces.


During the warm summer months, this soup is often drunk from a glass. In Andalusia almost every restaurant has this on its menu. An absolute fixture in Spanish cuisine.
