Description

       Salmorejo soup is a cream consisting of tomato and bread, originating in Cordoba.
    It has a pink-orange appearance like gazpacho, but salmorejo is dramatically thicker because it includes bread.

  • Salt

Directions

  • Wash the tomatoes and halve them.

  • Submerge the bread in frozen water for 20 minutes
  • To the grated tomato, add the sherry vinegar, the extra virgin olive oil and the peeled garlic cloves.
  • Add the drained and crumbled bread to the tomatoes (make sure to drain it well, we DON'T want extra water on our salmorejo!)
  • Beat until the soup becomes fine and adjust the seasoning.
  • chop the serrano ham pieces for cooking and the hard-boiled eggs.
  • Serve Salmorejo Soup in individual bowls and decorate with the diced serrano ham and eggs.
