  • Rinse the tomatoes. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients together and mix well. Cover and chill for 4-5 hours or overnight.

  • When the tomatoes have infused, whisk them with a blender, adding some more spices and sherry vinegar. The gazpacho is ready.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the sourdough croutons on the rack and top with the garlic and spices. Bake for 10-15 minutes until crispy, then take them out, brush with pesto, sprinkle with grated cheese, put them back in the oven. When golden crust appears, take them out of the oven.

  • Pour the soup into a bowl, place the croutons on top and drizzle everything with oil.
