For Gazpacho you will need:

4 tbsp wine vinegar

1 tsp Tabasco or harissa

1 tsp sugar or sweetener


basil leaves, to serve

Pop the onion, garlic, pepper, tomatoes and bread in a food processor and blend until finely chopped, but not too smooth. Tip into a large bowl with the passata, stock, vinegar, Tabasco or harissa, sugar and seasoning. You can add a little oil if preferred at this stage. Mix well, cover the bowl with foil and put in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight.


To serve, pour into small bowls or glasses, you can choose to drizzle with a little olive oil and then sprinkle with a few torn basil leaves.
