Cold soup is lovely on hot days.


Making and cooking it
  1. Tear up the bread and soak it in some water for 30 minutes and then squeeze it dry.
  2. Throw away the water
  3. Skin the tomatoes by placing them in a bowl of boiling water for 1 minute, take them out carefully, the hot water will have loosened the skin. Use your fingers or a knife to pull the skin off.  Then cut into quarters
  4. Peel the cucumber and cut into chunks
  5. Deseed and roughly cut up the peppers
  6. Chop up the onion
  7. Blend all the ingredients, including the pint cold water (apart from salt, pepper and ice cubes) in a food processor until roughly chopped, not too fine, because the soup should have a little bit of texture
  8. Put the soup into the fridge to chill, for at least an hour
  9. Pour soup into bowls, add some ice, add salt and pepper.  Serve
