Spicy Black Prince Gazpacho

This soup (plus some grilled cheese) was the perfect quick Sunday night dinner to end a day of errands. We had a few voluptuous Black Prince heirloom tomatoes, so this came out a sensuous shade of dark red, but you can use whatever tomatoes you have around.

What To Put In Your Blender

6 large tomatoes, chopped
1 scallion, chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
1 slice of bread (yes, you can use 100% whole wheat--we did--or rice bread)
1-2 raw serrano chiles, well minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon smoked spanish paprika (optional, but so good if you have it)
a sprig of oregano
a sprig of cilantro
a few chives (optional)
a sprig of parsley (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Okay--blend (in batches, if needed). That's it!

What to Put Atop Your Blended Soup
1 cucumber, diced
a drizzle of balsamic vinegar
