  • If you do not have an immersion blender, let the heat come down a little. Transfer to the blender jar of your mixie, blend till smooth and return to the cooker.
  • Switch on the stove and simmer the flame completely.
  • Mix in almond butter, if using, add salt, pepper and let it boil till you see small bubbles on top of the soup.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Serve this broccoli almond soup piping hot topped with almond slivers.
