Gazpacho? There's a scene in the Pedro Almodovar film, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, where gazpacho is offered to the police who come to the apartment of central character, Pepa Marcos.
Gazpacho is a Spanish, tomato-based, raw vegetable soup. Our favorite thing about this Martha version is that it is written for a single serving. So feel free to make it just for yourself on a whim or multiply it for more eaters if, like Almodovar's Pepa, you are expecting your lover's ex, her son, his girlfriend, and your girlfriend who has been harboring Shiite radicals to stop by.
