The following recipe is one of the healthiest ways of eating typical products from the Mediterranean. We refer to the wordlwide known Salmorejo Cordobés, that combines nourishment such as tomato, garlic, extra virgin olive oil or salt.
Squeeze seeds and pulp from ripe halved tomatoes into a strainer set over a large bowl. Press skins to release as much liquid as possible; discard them. Core and chop tomatoes and add them to the bowl.
Combine three toasted slices of white crusty bread, 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds and four smashed garlic cloves in a blender. Pulse until chopped. Add tomatoes with liquid to blender in batches, puréeing until they become very smooth.
