This brightly coloured summer soup from Silvana Franco is delicious hot or cold


1. Place the beetroot, cucumber, chilli and 1.5 litres of cold water in a liquidizer and blend until smooth - you will probably have to do this in two batches. Pass through a fine strainer into a large jug, then stir in the vinegar and season generously. Chill until ready to serve.

2. Tear one slice of bread into each bowl then scatter over the red onion, tomatoes and garlic. Pout over the chilled soup, sprinkle over the parsley and drizzle each serving with a splash of oil.
