Tomato, Mango and Ginger Gazpacho

2 ounces green beans, blanched and shocked, see notes
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup roasted and peeled red bell peppers (we used jarred)
1/4 cup peeled, chopped fresh ginger
3 fresh jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons Sweet Soy Sauce, see notes
4 cups tomato juice
1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 medium red onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 medium green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 small ripe tomato, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 mangoes, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Cut the beans into 1/4-inch rounds and set aside

Combine the pineapple juice, roasted red peppers, ginger, jalapenos and soy sauce in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Press the mixture through a fine sieve into a large bowl. Stir in the beans and the remaining ingredients and refrigerate, covered, until well chilled, about 2 hours.

To serve, stir the gazpacho, then ladle it into chilled bowls, dividing the vegetables and mango evenly. Serves 4 to 6 as a main bowl.

Note: Drop beans in boiling water for 2 minutes. Then transfer to ice water. Drain again thoroughly

To make Sweet Soy Sauce: Combine 2 cups regular or lite soy sauce, 1 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon chili paste. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer on low for 25 minutes. (We reduced this recipe by half and left out the chili paste.)
