    In 12 cup (3 L) large bowl, combine tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber, and onion. Add chilled vegetable stock, olive oil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire, parsley, and oregano. Gently stir to blend and add black pepper to taste. Set aside.


    In small bowl, place garlic and sprinkle with sea salt. Coarsely chop egg and add to garlic. Mash together with fork until blended. Along with mashed garlic and egg mixture, stir tomato juice into vegetable mixture. Add hot sauce to taste, if you wish. Cover and refrigerate for several hours for flavours to blend; gazpacho flavours are richer when refrigerated overnight. Serve with dollops of yogurt, if desired.
