BROCOLLI ALMOND SOUP

Brocolli Almond Soup



This recipe is high in protein and its tastes mcuh better than eating it boiled. Brocolli is somethign which most people dont prefer to have. This way to dont lose any nutrients of it as taken as whole. Since this is my favourite, i often make this at home which at times goes as breakfast too. Try it and you will see what I am trying to say :)

Ingredients :

Brocolli with stem - A medium
Almonds slivered - a handful
Milk - 1 cup ( use low fat or skimmed for healthier version)
Celery - 1 tsp chopped
Garlic - 1 tsp chopped ( optional)
Onion - 2 tbsp chopped
Cornflour - 1 tsp
Salt
Pepper
Butter/oil

Preparation :
Clean the brocolli nicely and remove the stem and florets seperately. Cut the stem into medium pieces and in 2 cups of water boil them till almost done. Dont overcook them. Then add in the florets, celery, onion and garlic and cook for about 10 mins on low flame. Once cooled blend the mixture to a puree.

Meanwhile in a pan add a little butter (oil) and saute almonds. Keep a few back for garnishing. Add in the the blended mixture and bring to a boil.

Mix cornflour in 1 tbsp milk. Add rest of the milk to the boiling mixture and bring again to boil. Simmer the flame and add in the cornflour mix. Add salt and pepper. Stir and cook for another 5 mins or so till the soup thickens. Serve hot and garnish with the slivered almonds kept aside.

Cheers,
Neetz ;)
