  • 1.3kg ripe tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped
  • 4 serrano chillies, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

Repeat blending with remaining tomatoes, chillies, garlic, bread and oil; add to measuring cup with first batch of soup. Stir in vinegar and 1 tsp salt. Cover with cling-film and refrigerate until cold (about 3 hours), or up to 1 day. Divide among serving bowls. Drizzle with additional oil, if desired. Garnish with ham and parsley.
