Gazpacho Córdoba Style

Gazpacho Córdoba Style
A classic Cordoba style gazpacho, which includes bread as an ingredient. Very refreshing and satisfying. The sherry vinegar adds an interesting dimension.

4 cups canned, peeled, crushed tomatoes
2 cucumbers
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small sweet onion
½ red or yellow bell pepper
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp crushed marjoram leaves
4 slices French bread, or similar rustic bread, moistened with water


Coarsely chop cucumbers, onion and bell pepper; place in food processor with tomatoes.  Add moistened bread after squeezing out excess water.  Add garlic, olive oil, sherry vinegar, marjoram, salt and pepper (to taste).

Process ingredients briefly. The resulting gazpacho should be thick and somewhat chunky -  not a smooth puree.

Serve in chilled bowl; garnish with diced cucumber.
