This is a Spanish cold soup very popular in summer. There are many ways and versions of this but i will show u the basic one. Its very easy, keeps a few days in the refrigerator and is low calorie and packed with vitamins. Every Spanish will have their own “VERSION” and special way of making it!!! So lets make it my way!!
INGREDIENTS FOR THE SOUP
1 kilo ripe red tomatoes
1 big cucumber
1 red capsicum
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 small red onion
1 cup of mineral water
salt, vinegar and olive oil to taste ( i add the olive oil later)
