Pansyface.......usual thing I'm afraid.......my bad habit of assuming everyone immediately knows what I am on about So here goes.......this is the "rustic" method I was shown so no cutting crusts of bread or peeling veg (other than onion and garlic ) but can be done if you want.
2 slices of bread
4 large ripe tomatoes
1 Green bell pepper
Half a cucumber
Half an onion
2 cloves Garlic
4 tbs good Olive Oil
2 tsp Salt
One quarter tsp freshly ground Cumin
5 tbs Lemon Juice
One quarter to One half litre of water.
Put bread to soak in water.
Chop up Toms, Cucumber, Pepper, Onion and Garlic .......put in Blender and run until pureed.
Decant the above into a bowl and put to one side.
Squeeze excess water from the soaked bread and run in the Blender until soggy.
Keeping the Blender running, add the Olive Oil little by little until incorporated into the bread.
Add the salt, Cumin and Lemon juice.
Ladle some of the contents of the bowl of veg into the blender and then when fully mixed, tip back into the bowl of remaining pureed veg and mix thoroughly. You can run the whole caboodle thru the Blender again if necessary.
Chill the resulting mixture in the fridge for a few hours. I decant into used Mineral Water bottles to save space in fridge.
As it cools down, it will thicken.............you can add cold water to thin it out to taste.
Depending on the size of your Blender, with the quantities given you may need to do it in two batches. IMO, it is not worth making in lesser quantities but then again, I love it and so can never have enough
Hope that is easy to follow...........if not, let me know
