This chilled tomato soup is a classic spanish dish and the addition of a touch of coconut milk, makes it a great way to add a creamy flavor without dairy. The coconut milk pairs very nicely with the garlicy tomato flavour. Use what you have available. Cucumber, celery and any type of pepper work well.
1 kg ripe salad tomatoes, core removed
½ cup cherry tomatoes
½ medium red or yellow pepper, deseeded
1 medium jalapeno (if you like it spicy)
2 garlic cloves, peeled
½ small white onion, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
- Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process on high until smooth and well incorporated. (If all of the ingredients won’t fit all at one time, blend tomatoes in 2 batches and stir everything together in a large bowl.) Taste and adjust salt to liking
- Cover soup and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Serve in cold soup bowls, drizzle with coconut milk if desired.
