    Found this recipe the other day, have not tried it yet but will soon - it looks so good, and is so easy!


    1 cup chopped red onions
    1 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1 cup chopped English cucumber
    1 cup peeled and chopped tomatoes
    1-1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic
    1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    1/4 cup tomato paste
    1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    3 cups tomato juice
    Sprig of thyme

    In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next day, remove the thyme and blend the soup in a blander until it is smooth; you will have about 1-1/2 quarts of soup. For a smoother texture, strain the soup; this will yield slightly less than 1 quart.

    When I get an overabundance of garden tomatoes I like to make it for dinner when it's hot. I'm lazy though, and just toss it all into the blender and enjoy about an hr. later.
