White Gazpacho, also known as Ajo Blanco, is Spain's other famous cold soup. The perfect starter, or a light meal on a hot summer day, this cold creamy dish consists of nothing more than bread, almonds, garlic, olive oil, and a splash of vinegar. Though composed of a short ingredient list and a simple method of preparation, once you taste Santa Teresa’s white Gazpacho you won’t believe that’s all it contains. Delicious notes of roasted nuts and garlic come to the forefront of the palate, while bread makes it a thick and luxurious consistency.
Before tomatoes made their way from the new world back to Spain, Ajo Blanco was the cold soup of choice in the Mediterranean. Though it may seem strange to put bread in soup, especially cold soup, as the bread breaks down, the dish becomes one homogenous velvety texture. The bread adds an amazing creaminess and gives the dish real heft and backbone. Though entirely vegan, what with the rich flavors of garlic and the subtle nutty taste of the almonds, all blended together in a lush bread base, you wouldn’t believe it doesn’t contain an ounce of cream or butter!
Completely free of any preservatives, thickeners, or additives, Santa Teresa’s delicious Ajo Blanco is expertly prepared, then shipped refrigerated to your door. Convenient, and oh so tasty, this soup tastes just like the ones you’d be served in 5-star restaurants in Spain.
