Green vegetables are said to be the most healthiest ones and so is this Broccoli. I love them in my pastas or just as stir fries too. They are just so soft and delicate and cook so fast that I always enjoy using them in my dishes.
I had this soup in a wedding reception recently and mind cooked the recipe and recreated it in my kitchen yesterday :) Oh God!! it was really delicious and all of them at home enjoyed it. Rich, creamy and healthy soup :)
Broccoli - 1 flower
Almonds - 10
Butter - 1 tblsp
Onion - 1
Potato - 1
Garlic - 3 pods
Salt - for taste
Pepper - for taste
Cheese - for garnish
Soak almonds in water for 2-3 hours.
Wash broccoli and cut into large florets.
Chop onions roughly. Peel and chop potato roughly. Dice garlic into small pieces.
Take a pressure cooker and add a tblsp of butter. Once it melts add the chopped garlic and fry for a min. Follow it by chopped onions and fry for few minutes. Now add the potato and broccoli. Pour a cup of water and pressure cook the contents for 2-3 whistles. Open the cooker once the steam releases and allow it to come to room temperature.
Meanwhile peel the soaked almond skin and grind it into a smooth paste by adding just a little water.
Now grind the pressure cooked vegetables into a smooth paste. Transfer this content into a thick bottomed vessel and add adequate water to get the soup consistency. Also add the ground almond paste to it.
Heat the soup for a boil or two. Add required amount of salt and pepper. Pour into the serving bowls and grate some cheese on top before serving.
Enjoy the hot and creamy soup :)
