"This gazpacho recipe gets an extra little crunch from chopped cauliflower and is finished with a unique touch of sesame oil just prior to serving. All our friends love it and constantly request the recipe. And it's better the next day! Garnish with croutons."
Combine tomatoes, green bell pepper, onion, cucumber, and garlic together in a bowl. Blend tomato mixture, working in small batches, in a food processor or blender until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and stir to combine all the batches.
Stir tomato-vegetable juice, salt, and black pepper into the tomato puree. Add cauliflower, olive oil, red wine vinegar, cumin, and hot pepper sauce; stir to combine. Cover and chill in refrigerator for 4 hours. Drizzle each serving with about 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil.
