  • Soften the bread with a little water and remove crusts.
  • Put the garlic and almonds into the mortar with a bit of salt and grind until obtaining a paste.
  • Add the bread, a drizzle of oil, the vinegar and cold water, so that you can eat the ajoblanco right away at the proper temperature.
  • Once you obtain the desired texture, serve it in individual bowls.
  • It’s traditionally accompanied with muscat grapes, pieces of melon, as well as jamón or anchovies.
  • If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can use a blender.
  • Blend the garlic and almonds with a bit water and then add the other ingredients.
  • Pass it through a sieve and you’re ready.
