    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    • 1 clove of garlic, peeled
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 medium Waitrose Vidalia Sweet Onion or mild onion, quartered
    • 4 tbsp Romate Sherry Vinegar
    • 190ml Carbonell Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 1 green pepper, deseeded and chopped
    • 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
    • 1 Waitrose Organic Ridge Cucumber or ½ large cucumber, peeled and chopped
    • 700g ripe plum tomatoes, skinned, quartered and cored
    • 250ml tomato juice
    • 8 drops Tabasco Pepper Sauce
    • 8 ice cubes
    • 4 sprigs fresh basil

    Method

    1. Chop and crush the garlic and combine with ½ tsp salt to form a paste. Place the garlic paste, 3 of the onion quarters, the vinegar and 100ml of the oil in a food processor. Blend to a purée. Add the peppers and cucumber and pulse until finely chopped. Pour into a large bowl.
    2. Reserve 8 tomato quarters and roughly chop the remainder, place in the food processor with 150ml of the tomato juice and pulse to finely chop, then add to the onion mixture. Blend the remaining tomato juice, 150ml iced water and the Tabasco and stir into the soup. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
    3. Finely dice the reserved tomato and remaining onion and toss together with 45ml of the oil. To serve, crush the ice cubes roughly and ladle the soup into bowls. Garnish with the crushed ice, chopped vegetables and basil sprigs, sprinkle with black pepper and drizzle over the remaining oil. Serve immediately.
