Broccoli almond soup

To make this broccoli and toasted almond soup, you will need:


For 6-8 servings:

- 2 medium heads of broccoli

- 1 large yellow onion

- Handful of sliced almonds

- 2 tbsp cooking oil

- Salt and pepper


Steps:


1- Wash your broccoli and chop it into florets, (note: for extra nutrition, don't completely chop off the stems). Place your chopped broccoli in a large pot of boiling salted water and let it boil until tender.


2- In the meantime, chop your onion into medium thickness slices (be sure to not chop them too thin) and add 2 tbsp cooking oil in a pot. Do not use olive oil or butter as they will burn your onions too quickly and they will fry instead of caramelize! Stir the onions around and separate them, add 1/2 tsp of salt, keep the heat on low, cover and let them caramelize. Check on them every once in a while to make sure they are not sticking to the pot (if they are, simply add a little bit of water).


3- After about 15-20 minutes, your onions should be caramelized and your broccoli should be tender. Remove the water from the broccoli and add the broccoli to the caramelized onions pot. Stir together, add 1.5 tsp salt and a 1/4 tsp pepper and some water to barely cover (do not add a lot of water so you can keep the soup nice and thick!). Let them cook together for while so the flavors mesh.


4- In the meantime, toast your sliced almonds in a pan (do not add any oil). Keep the heat on low to keep the almonds from burning.


5- Blend your pot of soup together in a blender or nutribullet (note: if using a nutribullet, I like to let it cool down before I blend because the nutribullet container is not glass. If you're using a blender with a glass container, you can blend right away). Place your soup in a pot, and check on the thickness. If you want less thickness, add water and let it simmer. If your soup turned out too thin, don't worry, you can still fix it by adding 1 tbsp of oats. You will have to blend it again after adding the oats in.


6- Add your toasted almonds on top and serve!


Enjoy!
