Spanish Recipes | Easy porra recipe

Spanish Recipes | Easy porra recipe

This easy porra recipe from Antequera is sneaking in while we still have summer in Spain. Like gazpacho and salmorejo, it is a chilled tomato soup and there are a million variations. This is a simple one.  Personally I prefer this because it has a bit more depth. Enjoy!
