I am in FL where it gets super warm in the summer, this is like a meal version of what watermelon makes me feel like after I eat it on a hot day...
This is my favorite soup. Please add/delete ingredients to your liking.
5 ripe tomatoes
1 bell pepper
1 cucumber ( take the seeds out)
1 large onion
garlic ( fresh I usually put 3 cloves)
1/4 cup lemon juice
cumin-to your liking
cayenne-to your liking
salt -to your liking
olive oil ( recipe asks for two tablespoons, I don't use much)
1 can tomato juice
Put all ingredients in a food processor, chop to your liking. I can't fit it all in one time so I do it 2 or three times, dump it all in a big bowl and add the entire can of tomato juice, but you do not have to. Do not eat until the next day and make sure it is very cold. Some people add sour cream ( will kill the bite if you were cayenne happy), and croutons.
