Grilled Tomato Gazpacho

Grilled Tomato Gazpacho
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Grill the vegetables for this refreshing soup earlier in the day or even the night before. We sometimes serve the gazpacho in clear Spanish wine tumblers to show off the rich color.

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds
    ripe plum tomatoes
  • 1 small
    red bell pepper
  • English cucumber, peeled and seeded, divided
  • 1/2 cup
    torn fresh or day-old country bread, crusts removed
  • 1 small clove
    garlic
  • 2-3 tablespoons
    red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon
    chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    piment d’Espelette or hot Spanish paprika or pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons
    extra-virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Grill tomatoes and bell pepper, turning a few times, until they soften and the skins are blistered and charred in spots, about 8 minutes. Transfer the pepper to a plastic bag and let it steam until cool enough to handle. Peel off the skin; cut the pepper in half and discard the stem and seeds. Place one half in a blender. When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, core and roughly chop. Add the tomatoes, skins and all, to the blender.
  3. Add half the cucumber to the blender along with bread, garlic, vinegar to taste, parsley, piment d’Espelette (or paprika or cayenne), salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Add oil and blend until well combined. Refrigerate until room temperature or chilled, at least 1 hour.
  4. Before serving, finely dice the remaining cucumber and bell pepper; stir half of each into the gazpacho and garnish with the remaining cucumber and bell pepper.
