Tools: liquidiser or food processing attachment

Method

  1. Immerse the tomatoes in a bowl of boiling water for 15 seconds; remove using a slotted spoon, cool slightly then peel away the skins and roughly chop.
  2. Place the tomatoes in the Liquidiser or Food Processing bowl with the garlic and parsley or basil, tomato purée and cucumber and blend until smooth.
  3. Strain through a nylon sieve into a bowl, pushing through as much as possible.
  4. Stir in the spring onions, green pepper and finely chopped cucumber with the lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and leave to chill for 2 hours in the fridge.
  5. Just before serving check the seasoning again as chilling will reduce the strength of the flavours. Spoon into chilled serving bowls, add one or two ice cubes to each bowl and serve garnished with croûtons, if wished.
