  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir leeks until soft, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove to a plate and allow to cool.
  2. Place cucumbers in a blender with grapes, almonds, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, creme fraiche, bread cubes, vinegar, cooled leeks, and water. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Taste and season with salt and cayenne pepper. If needed, add some more vinegar. Serve garnished with dill oil (see note), thinly sliced grapes, slivered almonds, and fresh dill.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Make a garnish of dill oil for drizzling on top of the soup. Simply smash some fresh dill in mortar and pestle and slowly drizzle in vegetable oil.
  • Freeze some soup in ice cube trays and serve in the bottom of each cup to keep the soup cold.

The flavor was great. I used Greek yougurt lacking the creme. I'm not sure what purpose the bread serves only to get strained out... Will make again and try without the bread next time.

Loved this Gazpacho. I added a few other ingredients: yellow and orange peppers, yellow cherry tomatoes. I also changed some of the ingredients: used Salvadoran cream instead, yellow onion, and ...

This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except for the crème fraiche (didn' have any)and used lemon juice instead of vinegar (no real reason). I like my gazpacho with croutons so I had...
