White Gazpacho (Gazpacho Blanco)

80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
8 ingredients
4-6 servings
There are 7 posted "white gazpacho" recipes on Recipezaar, but all are modifications of the "traditional" recipe ... so here is at least one version of the traditional recipe -- this is how gazpacho blanco is made around Granada (the Andalusian region). This recipe uses almonds to form almond milk -- clearly the recipe comes from the Moorish period of Spanish history. The ingredients are all traditional: olive oil, almonds, garlic and bread.As the other zaar recipes have done, "cooking time" is actually chilling time.Beware of the garlic in this recipe -- it packs a definite punch! My source recommends making a gazpacho blanco and a red gazpacho and serving them in small glasses so everyone gets one of each for the different flavors ...From "The Food of Spain and Portugal" by Elizabeth Luard.Submitted for Zaar World Tour 5 (2009).
