COLD TOMATO SOUP WITH EGGPLANT GARNISH or ZUPPA FREDDA DI POMODORO E MELANZANA FRITTA

Red tomatoes

If I were a drinks person and if I had to choose one drink only for the rest of my life, I think I would choose Bloody Mary. I love tomato juice or fresh tomato sauce made of sweet summer tomatoes, I often finish off the the remaining tomato sauce made for the weekly pizzas with a spoon and I especially love it cold. So this soup is just a natural consequence of my tomato love. I know it looks horribly greasy but what you see is the little extra virgin olive oil that I added after the sauce was ready and cold and then it tends to remain like that but I can assure you that this is one fresh and light soup!
