6 large ripe or over-ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 large red capsicum, chopped and seeded
1 medium sized cucumber, peeled and roughly chopped
2-3 cloves garlic
A few drops of Kaitaia Fire (optional)
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar (may need more)
1 tsp salt


Place all in blender and blend on high speed for a minute or 2. Taste. It may need more vinegar and/or salt. If your tomatoes are not the ripest or are lacking in flavour then add a tbsp of tomato paste to the mix before blending. After blending you can strain it through a mesh strainer (not too fine of a strainer though) but this is an optional step. Serve very cold either in a glass (Spanish style) or in a bowl.

My children grew up scrubbing mud off their root veg and knowing where it came from. I credit Foodlife for our strong immune systems. We never get coughs & colds when we are eating this fantastic produce. It lasts ages and tastes so good!
