Ajo blanco, for 33'C/91'F days. Super refreshing, bright and more-ish. Often better on Day Two.
3 garlic cloves, peeled
1 cup powdered almonds (must be very fresh)
2 slices white bread soaked in milk
1 bouillon cube or real chicken stock - 3-4 cups liquid
1 Tbsp sherry vinegar
1 cup halved white grapes
Combine ingredients in blender and whoosh till smooth. The texture should be creamy but easily pourable. Add more almonds or liquid accordingly. Taste, add salt and pepper. Chill.
To serve, pour the soup into bowls or cups and add grapes and ice cubes.
