Almonds are special because the effect they have on our palate is unusual. While their richness is intoxicating, their mildly nutty flavour is very soothing at the same time.

Naturally, a soup made with this wonderful ingredient is nothing short of a special treat. While the blanching and de-skinning of almonds takes a bit of time, the actual preparation of the soup is very easy and quick, so the effort is well-balanced and the final outcome is completely worthy of it!

You can peel and refrigerate the almonds earlier, but prepare the soup just before serving in order to enjoy the best texture. Since the soup is white sauced based, it tends to get gooey upon cooling.

Really healthy and tasty soup! its different as it is nut based rather than the more conventional - vegetable or fruit based.
