For the feasts of Spanish saint, such as St. John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila, try your hand at authentic Spanish recipes, such as gazpacho, a cold tomato soup. This is usually a summer dish, but if you can find good ripe tomatoes, the soup is good any time of year.

DIRECTIONS

Using a food processor, combine the tomatoes, pepper, onion, cucumber, red wine vinegar, garlic, olive oil, 1 slice bread, salt and pepper in batches. Gazpacho should be thick, not a puree. Add parsley and basil to taste. Depending on whether you prefer thin or thicker soup, add tomato juice to thin, or more bread slices to thicken. Chill thoroughly. To serve, place in chilled bowls or cups and garnish with croutons and the chopped vegetables. You can also serve at room temperature.
