Cold almond soup


This is a really interesting soup, deliciously surprising.
- soak some white bread in a little water (cut the crusts off first)
- Take a similar amount of almonds (ie: equal amounts of bread and almonds) and grind in the blender
- Add two or three cloves of garlic and the soaked bread, grind a bit more until you get a paste
- Add a little sherry vinegar
- Slowly drizzle with olive oil and keep blending in the mixer until the resulting "paste" become smooth
- Add water slowly until you obtain the required consistency: the soup should be slightly thick but not too watery
- Season with plenty salt and pepper and place in the fridge to cool for at least 2 hours or more
- This soup need to be served very cool, you can add a couple of ice cubes before serving if necessary
- Decorate with roasted almonds and deseeded grapes (black and white)
