A cold, thick soup that is easy, delicious, low in calories and extremely  healthy! It makes a more filling soup when served with croutons. If you are  growing a garden, this is a great way to use some of the surplus!

1 medium slicing cucumber, cut into chunks
1 clove garlic, cut into smaller pieces
1 medium-large red bell pepper (can substitute other colors, but red works
best for color)
1/2 medium onion, cut into chunks
1 medium-large tomato, cut into chunks
8 oz. can tomato sauce
3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, optional
3 Tbsp. vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
cilantro, optional

Put the cucumber in a food processor and process until finely chopped; add  the garlic, bell pepper and onion and process all until finely chopped. Add the  rest of the ingredients and process until you have a thick, textured cold  soup. Serve right away if desired, or serve 1-2 days later. It's delicious  either way.
