Yield:
Serves 4

Served cold, this soup is quick to fix and very healthy!

Ingredients:

  1. 2 cups tomato juice
  2. 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  3. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  4. 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  5. 1/2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  6. salt to taste
  7. pepper to taste
  8. 1/4 cup seeded and diced cucumber
  9. 1/4 cup finely diced green bell pepper
  10. 1 plum tomato, seeded and finely diced
  11. 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
  12. 1/4 cup zucchini, finely diced (optional)
  13. 1 hard boiled egg white, finely chopped (optional)
Directions:

Place the tomato juice, garlic and olive oil in a blender and process until the garlic is pureed. Add the bread crumbs and vinegar, and blend to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour into a covered container and chill well, from 2 hours to overnight.

When ready to serve, check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. Divide the soup among 4 serving bowls. Add 1 tablespoon each of the diced cucumber, pepper, tomato and onion, plus the zucchini and egg white if desired. (Or instead, add the diced vegetables to the juice mixture before serving.)
