Almond and Garlic Soup (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 4 small portions

About 1-1/2 cup peeled almonds (not roasted)
2-1/2 to 3 soup bowls full of ice water
2 tablespoons or more of wine vinegar
About 1-1/2 cloves of raw garlic
About 1/4 cup olive oil
Green grapes or apricots
Mint leaves to garnish

Put first five ingredients in a good blender on high speed. It will get white like milk. Check, it may need salt, vinegar. If it's not thick enough, add more almonds. It's okay to mix in other nuts or pine nuts, but it won't be as snowy white. When it's okay, add the oil. That's it!

Serve in chilled bowls over green grapes or apricots (that's the surprise! You can't see them through the opaque soup) and garnish with mint leaves.
