Ajoblanco - the "white gazpacho"

Created: Wednesday, 20 July 2022 Written by Katherine O`Neill

If you've had your fill of 'regular' gazpacho - cold tomato soup - it's time to try this refreshing alternative made from garlic and almonds.

This Andalusian specialty is a summer favourite and can be had alone or a slightly thinned version to go with a baked potato.
