Make a small cross in the top of each tomato with a paring knife and plunge into boiling salted water for 30 seconds, then drain and rinse with cold water. This makes them easier to peel. Peel tomatoes, cut into quarters and remove seeds.
In a blender, combine the tomatoes, cucumber, capsicums, onion, garlic and chilli. Add the olive oil, water and lemon juice. Blend to a smooth soup and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve chilled.
