This recipe comes from “The Ballykissangel Cookbook”. Ballykissangel is the fictional Irish village in the popular BBC TV drama series of the same name, that was on air a few years ago. I’m not a big soup fan, but this one sounds really interesting, especially as it can be served hot or cold. The original recipe calls for chicken stock, but then that wouldn’t be very vegetarian (!), so I’ll leave it to you what sort of stock you use. Hot and cold serving suggestions are at the end of the cooking instructions, but either way I think this would be a good alternative to gazpacho. You’ll need to add extra time for chilling if serving this cold.
