Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Yield: 6 Servings
- 2-2 1/2 lbs. ripe tomatoes
- 8-10 oz. fresh raspberries (Frozen, if fresh not available)
- 1/2 large red bell pepper
- 16 oz. orange juice
- 8 oz. water
- 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
- 2/3 cup extra virgin Spanish olive oil

To peel tomatoes, it is best to dunk them in boiling water for 1 minute. Remove and immediately place in cold water. This will loosen the skin and you will be able to peel them quickly and easily.
Once the tomatoes are peeled, chop them into quarters and place them in a large non-metallic mixing bowl.
Remove the seeds and devein the pepper. Coarsely chop and add to the bowl.
Set aside a few raspberries to use as garnish later, if desired. Place the rest of the raspberries, orange juice, oil, vinegar and salt into the bowl and stir.
Pour mixture into food processor or blender and puree. You may need to do this in batches. As each batch is pureed, pour into another large bowl or pitcher.
Gradually pour pureed mixture through a strainer or sieve into a large bowl. Cover and place in refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour.
Note: If you wish to serve immediately, serve as a drink instead of a soup. Pour into glasses of ice and garnish with raspberries.
Remove soup from refrigerator and stir thoroughly. Ladle soup into serving bowls, garnish with raspberries and serve cold.
