You must have heard ‘less is more’. Yeah…. it was all about good almond soup. The key to making best almond soup is not in adding something; but its about not adding anything else except almonds. Almond have very delicate flavor so garlic, spices and anything can quickly undermine the nutty taste of almonds. If you love roasted almonds try my homemade almond butter. It’s easy to make and have heavenly taste.

Step by step toasted easy almond soup recipe:


We start with blanched silver almonds for this recipe. Roast them in a pan and they will release their natural oil.

Let them cool for a few minutes and then grind them into fine powder, the powder has to be very fine as we want our soup to be smooth.

In a skillet add butter, flour and almond powder. Sautee for a minutes.See notes 2


Add 1 cup warm stock, mix well so all powder dissolves well without any lump. Then add remaining stock and water.

Add salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 20 minutes on medium low flame with lid covered so all the flavors blend together.


Add fresh cream right before serving. See notes. 

Serve with a slice of fresh lemon.

Notes.

  1. Always add cream in serving bowl before serving as the cream with curdle upon heating. If the cream curdles almond soup is still good to eat but the look of the soup is not very pleasant.
  2. This is a thin consistency shorba soup, but you can increase the quantity of flour added with grinded almond to 4 tbs for a thick soup. Or you can also add cornflour for thickening soup.
  3. You may add  1/2 tin of sweet corns for enriched flavors.
