Total time: 15 minutes plus 1 hour chilling | Serves 4 to 6
  • 2 pounds very ripe tomatoes (about 7 tomatoes)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1 small French roll
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Salt
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/4 pound serrano ham, diced

Step 1Peel and seed the tomatoes and cut them into eighths.

Step 3Divide the soup among bowls and garnish each with the chopped egg and the ham.

Note: Although jamon is only a garnish for this heartier version of gazpacho-like soup, I've included this dish because it is one of my favorites. This would be a good summer dish.
