"This is a wonderful recipe for a spicy cold tomato soup. Works great as an appetizer or main dish. It's very refreshing on hot days. Keeps, tightly covered, in the freezer up to 3 months." — CAT609

cucumber, peeled and diced
green bell pepper, diced
green onions, chopped
2 1/2 cups
navy beans, rinsed and drained
red wine vinegar
1 (46 fluid ounce) can
minced fresh parsley
minced fresh basil
minced fresh oregano
No matter how good this soup is, it is NOT Andalusian Gazpacho. I should know, I am a Spaniard. No cumin, no beans, no celery, no basil, no oregano and no parsley. The tomatoes are real, fresh ones, not juice. And the onions should be regular, not green.
Don't mean to be vindicative, just accurate...
A review from Spain. This is a recipe for a delicious vegetable cold soup, I made it yesterday. But it's not a Andalusian Gazpacho, sorry, it's just inspired. In the Gazpacho there's not: celery, navi beans, canned tomato juice (only fresh tomatoes), cumin, parsley, basil or oregano. You can add those ingredients for a very good, but all different, could soup.
If you have leftover cucumbers and it's hot outside. Make yourself some of this cold soup. Made it the night before and when I came home from work it was ready to eat. Plus you can freeze it! Makes 10 servings. Was very good. I added some red hot to mine.
Although this was easy I ended up throwing out all the leftovers. I think using fresh tomatoes rather than canned juice will make a big difference. I would reccomend trying a recipe with fresh ingredients before this one.
Excellent recipe for a very refreshing summer soup. A touch of red pepper or a few drops of Tabasco give some extra zip.
Delicious, easy, and inexpensive.
I did, however, simmer for a short period then
chilled and served.
I've been looking for this soup recipe found several throughout the years. This one is #1! Thanks!
It didn't work for us. I enjoyed but not my families cup of soup.
