October 8, 2016Salmorejo is the best Gazpacho alternative you have never heard of. Thicker, fewer ingredients and even easier to make. It is popular in Spain for a reason!
- Prep: 15 mins
- Difficulty: Easy
- Yields: Serves 6
Salmorejo is found all over Andalusia for good reason – it’s delicious, light and a joy to eat. Much like a standard gazpacho, but thicker and without the cucumber, it finds its way onto tapas menus all over Cordoba and Seville. Usually served with chopped egg, tuna or ham – it is also used as an element in many other tapas or simply gracing a tortilla.
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. You will need to scrape the sides several times - the result should be thick but light. If you need to make it thinner, add a little water.
The riper the tomatoes are, the better the result will be - so find the best ones you can.
