This is a traditional Spanish soup, much like gazpacho. I´ve even heard it called white gazpacho before. Making it fully raw is so easy it´s incredible. The original recipe called for 150 grams of almonds, and I think a cup was about what I used. Garlic can be increased or decreased. I used 4 tonight and it was HOT!...

Recipe Directions

If you have a Vita-Mix, you are super lucky. I don´t, so this is what I did. Blend almonds and garlic until uniform. Add olive oil to blender and blend again. Add salt and water to the mix and blend yet again until a creamy soup forms. Serve garnished with grapes.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE grapes in this. Green or Red, but i´m partial to green. Enjoy!!!

Awesome, i´m glad you enjoyed it. I´ll have to try it with the cucumber as well.

Hmm..I don´t know because the almonds really add the necessary well, almondy flavor. I would say that the best substitute would probably be cashews because of the creaminess. I totally forgot about the pasteurization thing now. Have you tried sourcing European almonds?

hey, one question

since almonds aren't raw anymore here in north america, do you know of any other nut that would make a good substitute?

I just made this last night, but with 1 cup grapes and 1/2 cucumber as well. Also too much garlic, but delicious!
