Instructions

  1. Put the roasted red peppers, plum tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, garlic and red wine vinegar in a blender with 80ml cold water. Blitz until the mixture is a smooth, thick consistency.
  2. With the motor still running, gradually add the oil in a slow, steady stream, until combined. Season to taste and blitz again to combine.
  3. Strain the soup through a fine sieve into a large bowl or jug, then transfer to the fridge and chill until very cold.
  4. Whisk the cold gazpacho (it may have separated a little during the chilling process), then ladle into bowls. Season and serve topped with the mixed cherry tomatoes, avocado and reserved tomato seeds.
