Broccoli and Almond Soup

Hi Friends,
 Last week I visited Amarendra's Blog, he made Broccoli-Almond Soup. As I am a big fan of soups and starters, I decided to make this soup.........

I made it last night and boys guess what ?? Soup was a hit at my place...
Its quiet thick, creamy and healthy as well.So sharing his recipe with you all...

 Ingredients:
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium size onion (roughly slice)
2-3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1/2 cup blanched almonds (paste)
2 cups water
1 small broccoli (washed and cut into small florets)
1 slice of bread
1 cup of milk
1 tbsp of cream
1 tbsp of cream cheese
Salt acc.to taste
1/4 tsp pepper powder
A pinch of sugar
Garnish: Blanched and chopped almonds





Method:

  • Take a heavy bottomed pan, add oil and butter.
  • Now add minced garlic and onion. Saute till onions become golden pink in colour.

  • Add broccoli florets and cook for 3-4 mins on high flame.
  • Now add almond paste and mix well.


  • Add water and cook the broccoli on slow flame for 10-15 mins. 
  • Remove from fire.

  • Once the mixture cools down, put a slice of bread along with the broccoli mixture in the mixer. Blend it into a smooth paste.

  • Again transfer the paste into a pan, Bring it to boil.
  • Lower the flame, add milk, pepper, salt and a pinch of sugar. Mix well.

  • Now add cream and cheese cream both. Cook on low flame till cheese melts.

  • Remove from fire.
  • Garnish with chopped almonds and serve hot.
