Tips for success with Ajo Blanco

There are a few things to consider when cooking Ajo Blanco. Here are some great tips for success with soup:

a selection of almonds

As for almonds, it would be better to use Marcone almonds in this recipe. This is a Spanish sweet almond commonly used in the production of Ajo Blanco.

If you can’t find it in stores, you can always buy regular sweet almonds.

The almonds you buy must not be roasted or salted, but must be raw and peeled.

choice of olive oil

High-quality extra virgin olive oil is recommended when cooking Spanish almond soup.

Olive oil is a big part of the flavor, so it’s important to buy really good olive oil. The better the olive oil, the better the soup.

If you use cheap olive oil in this recipe, you might ruin the flavor.

Always start with 1 clove of garlic

The flavor of garlic cloves can be mild or strong depending on what you buy for your garlic.

To prevent the soup from getting too much garlic flavor, always start with 1 clove of garlic. Stir, taste and possibly add more if you want a stronger garlic flavor.

I find 1 garlic clove is usually enough, but that’s a matter of taste.

Ajo blanco, also known as “white gazpacho”, is a popular soup from Andalusia, Spain. The word “ajo” means garlic and the word “blanco” means white.

It is traditionally made from bread, almonds, garlic, water, olive oil and salt – and sometimes vinegar too.

The soup is served cold, which is perfect for eating outside in the summer when it’s hot. Just before serving, fill the cold almond soup with green grapes or melon for a particularly fresh and good taste.

A relative of the soup is “Ajoblanco Extremano”. It’s a soup made from water, olive oil, egg yolk, bread, vinegar, and vegetables like cucumbers and tomatoes—but it usually doesn’t contain almonds.

How long does it take to drive Blanco?

Store the soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Eat 2-3 times a day.
