Israeli Salad Gazpacho Soup

With tomatoes and cucumbers in season in this warmer weather, Gazpacho Soup is on the menu at our house! 


My husband and I are picky about Gazpacho Soup. We don’t like every recipe. One day I had made a larger than usual amount of Israeli salad, which I make with just chopped tomatoes and cucumbers, salt and pepper.  By the next morning, the salad was watery and I really didn’t want to eat it. I wondered how it would taste as Gazpacho Soup.  Adding some homemade croutons and allowing them to soak up the extra liquid, I then put an immerser blender in and blended until smooth. So easy.


It was the perfect recipe.

The romance of rails is written into just about every scene in The Dining Car.  Who wouldn’t want to live, like main character Horace Button, in a private railcar fitted up with bedrooms, an observing balcony and a kitchen for gourmet meals? Horace Button, a self-absorbed gourmet alcoholic, turns out to be a likeable and intelligent fellow, even his strength surprises himself.

Eric Peterson develops an unusual plot, memorable and unconventional characters---with a satisfying ending in which the main characters find they are stronger than they imagined.

Israeli Salad Gazpacho Soup

4 cucumbers

5-6 medium sized tomatoes, deseeded

1 cup croutons

2 sprigs parsley, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste


Optional Garnish

   2 tablespoons chopped red and yellow bell peppers

   2 tablespoons red onion or chives

1. If you are using organic cucumbers you can keep the peel. For non-organic cucumber, I would peel.

2. Chop cucumbers and tomatoes and put into bowl. Add croutons and soften.  Add parsley. Puree with an immerser blender or place in a blender.

3. Add salt and pepper to taste.

4.  If desired, add 2 tablespoons red onion or chives for a garnish. Sprinkle a little onto each bowl before serving
