Gazpacho de espárragos blancos y berberechos

Gazpacho with white asparagus and cockles

🍲 Discover a fresh and delicious recipe to enjoy what's left of summer in style: white asparagus and cockle gazpacho. 😋 We promise you that you will be impressed by its flavor and freshness! 🌱🐚

You will need to:

🔹 500 g canned white asparagus 🔹 375 ml evaporated milk 🔹 ½ kg fresh cockles 🔹 100 ml white wine 🔹 A pinch of salt 🔹 A pinch of white pepper 🔹 1 tablespoon chopped chives

Place the cockles in a bowl of cold water and add a handful of salt. This will help loosen any sand they may have. Then drain them. Now, take a saucepan to the kitchen and increase the heat to medium-high temperature. Add the cleaned cockles to the casserole and pour over the white wine.

When the white wine evaporates, cover the pot with a lid and allow the cockles to open. Once they are open, remove them from the pot and reserve the cockles. Cut the asparagus into pieces and place them in a blender along with the cockle broth and evaporated milk. Blend the mixture until it is completely liquefied and pass the mixture through a food mill if necessary. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the gazpacho in individual bowls. Add the cockles you had reserved as a delicious garnish. Sprinkle chopped chives on top for a touch of freshness and flavor. Ready!
