Procedure

Gather ingredients. 

To prepare the vegetables: Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds of the tomatoes. Reserve in a bowl. 
Roughly chop the celery and cucumber. Peel and chop the carrot. 

To make the soup: Place the seeded tomatoes, cucumber, celery, and carrot in a high-speed blender. 
Add the Sherry, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper. If you like a little kick, add a dash of cayenne.
Add 1 cup of the tomato seeds and juices. Add 1./2 cup of water or vegetable stock. 
Puree until smooth. Add more stock or water, as needed, to reach a smooth consistency. You might add another 1/2 cup or so to reach this smoothness. 
Taste to adjust seasoning. 

Serve chilled, garnished with diced avocado or cucumber. 

Chef's Tips: Chill the serving bowl to make sure the soup stays cold.  Let the market tell you which tomatoes to use. Choose sweet-smelling, vine-ripened tomatoes for the most flavorful gazpacho
