Salmorejo (Without Bread)

"Salmorejo is a cold soup with a tomato base– much like the ever popular gazpacho. What makes salmorejo different than gazpacho (Spain’s other cold soup) is the addition of quite a bit of stale bread, hard-boiled egg, and diced serrano ham served on top. NOTE: In this recipe, I've substituted almond flour for the bread and used bacon (nitrate-, dextrose-, and sugar-free)."

    I'd never eaten this before until now and wow, was it good! The egg and bacon on top was the perfect compliment to the taste and texture of the salmorejo. This is a great summer recipe when you don't want to warm up your kitchen too much!

    Sorry, not at all the way they make it in Spain.
