Soak the bread in a shallow dish of water for 30 secs on each side. Whizz together the soaked bread, tomatoes, green pepper, garlic and olive oil in a food processor. Add 2 tbsp cider vinegar, a large pinch of salt and 100ml water, then mix again to a smooth soup consistency, adding a little more water if it is too thick. Check the seasoning and add more salt, vinegar or olive oil to taste.
Chill the soup for at least 1 hr, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper. Top with the egg, onion, ham and green pepper.
