Broccoli & Almond Soup

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 :)

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 :)
