try draining out and reserving the liquid and puréeing the solids—and then adding back the reserved liquid until it's the consistency you like!

Personally, I would strain the crushed tomatoes, set the separated liquid aside, and proceed. Toward the end, make the call if the reserved juice should be added back into the mixture.

It's not always possible to follow a recipe 100%, and it is up to the individual cook to adapt any given recipe to his or her purposes and/or preferences.

It's soup, what's too much liquid? I'd worry more about the flavor of canned tomatoes uncooked- you'd be better off with good fresh tomatoes- ripeness is really more important than variety.

It's tomato season! Use the fresh tomatoes for gazpacho now and save the canned tomato recipe for fall or spring.
