Summer Cold Tomato Soup

 

This is a wonderful soup for those hot Bulgarian summers and makes a great alternative to tarator soup,and a good way to help use up the abundunce of those tomatoes from your garden.

It is extremely easy,and quick to prepare,a real break from standing over a hot stove!

Ingredients:

8 Medium sized Tomatoes chopped roughly

100-150g Olives-green or black

1/2 ltr Tomato juice

1 tablespoon Lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

1 Red Pepper chopped roughly

Salt to taste

Sugar(optional) depends on how sweet the tomatoes are

1 handful celery leaves chopped roughly

250g white cheese(sirene or feta)

1 tablespoon Chopped Parsley

2 Cloves Garlic (or more if you want to be on your own for the day)

 

Method:

Put all ingredients into blender exept white cheese and olives.

Blend everything down until liquid.

Depending on the capacity of your blender,this can be done in 2 halves and later mixed together.

Put the soup in the fridge until cold enough to your liking,usually 1 hour is sufficient.

Whilst the soup is cooling chop up the cheese small and de-stone the olives and chop them also.

Add these to the soup prior to eating.

Enjoy!
