  • 1½ lbs ripe tomatoes (about 5-7), chopped

  1. In a large non-reactive bowl, combine all ingredients. For the broth, begin with 3 cups. Working in batches, purée in blender. If consistency is too thick, add more broth. Once entirely blended, pour back into bowl and cover.
  2. Chill at least 2 hours in the refrigerator, preferably overnight for flavors to come together.
  3. Check for seasoning and adjust if necessary and stir well, or pulse in blender before serving. Garnish with cucumber slices, a sprig of cilantro, and/or chopped red onion.
