How To Cook


In a blender, combine almonds, water and garlic and blend on high, until the mixture is smooth and creamy. 


Add bread and blend on high again until very smooth. Blend in vinegar and olive oil. (If your blender is not high power, you may want to strain the soup through a fine mesh strainer.) Season with salt to taste. 


Cover and refrigerate until very cold, at least 2 hours. 


Give the soup a stir and serve garnished with grapes and a light drizzle of olive oil. 

(Note: Roasted Marcona almonds can be substituted for the blanched almonds but will add a nuttier flavor.)

A great summer alternative to gazpacho if you're not a fan of tomatoes!
