Description

White Gazpacho or Ajo Blanco is a cold Spanish soup made of cucumbers, green grapes, almonds and garlic. It’s refreshing and creamy, and happens to be vegan!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Peeled And Chopped English Cucumber
  • 2 cups Green Grapes, Plus 2 Tablespoons Sliced, For Garnish
  • 3 cups Sour Dough Bread, Crust Removed, Cut Into ¾ Inch Cubes, Divided
  • ½ cups Blanched Almonds
  • 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 5 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Divided
  • 2 Tablespoons Sherry Or Champagne Vinegar, Or To Taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (or To Taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Chives, Chopped, For Garnish

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place nuts on a parchment lined sheet tray and toast until golden brown, about 8 minutes, turning half way through. Cool.

Add cucumbers, grapes and garlic to blender. Blend until pureed. Stir in 1 cup of bread cubes and almonds and allow to soak and soften for about 30 minutes. Blend until as smooth as possible. Stream in 3 tablespoons of oil gradually while blending. Strain through sieve.

Season with vinegar, lemon and salt to taste. Chill in the fridge.

While bread and almonds soak in soup, add remaining 2 cups of bread cubes to a medium sized nonstick pan. Toss in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt. Turn pan to medium and slowly brown while crisping up, tossing frequently. Add remaining tablespoon of oil after bread absorbs first portion. Cook until dried out and crispy, adjusting heat as needed, about 15 minutes. Cool.

Serve soup in bowls garnished with croutons, sliced grapes, chives and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy.
