Posting after a long break……. Today I made some Broccoli soup with almonds. Tasted yumm and creamy. The colour too was beautiful.
Broccoli – 1 cup (florets)
Almond paste -3 to 4.(Soak almonds and make a paste adding a little milk say about three table spoons
Milk Cream – 1 table spoon
Onions – 2
Baking soda – 1/4 spoon.
Garlic cloves – 3 to 4
Milk – 1.5 cups
Water – 1 cup
pepper – 1/2 spoon(coarsely ground)
Salt as per taste.
Cornflour – 1/2 spoon
Water – 1 cup.
In a saucepan boil a cup of water. Put off the flame and then add the baking soda and the broccoli bits. Blanch them and then strain them.
Roast the onions and garlic cloves over direct flame or put them on a pan and dry roast on high flame .
Chop them randomly and then when it’s at room temperature blend them along with The blanched broccoli, almonds,milk,cornflour.
Transfer it to a saucepan and then boil the mixture for about 5 to 6 minutes to get the desired consistency. Add salt as per taste and mix well.
Enjoy it as is or with some cream freshly ground pepper.
