Broccoli Almond Soup

BM # 45 Week 3 Day 2

For Day 2 under Tame the yeast challenge I decided to serve Almond Broccoli Soup with the Egg less Flax seed Buns.True, I am not a soup person, and hardly make them but my daughter is an expert with these , since she must feed her kids with a healthy soup everyday. So this soup comes from her treasure for my son , who is fond of these. You could add herbs of your choice to change the flavors.

Broccoli soup
1 tsp butter
3 cloves garlic
5 almonds
1 green chilly
1 tb sp onion
1/4 cup bottle gourd
A small piece sweet potato
1/2 head broccoli
In a pressure cooker sauté the garlic and onions in butter.
Add almonds, gourd, sweet potato, green chilly and broccoli.
Add little water and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.
Open the pressure cooker once the pressure drops down.
Let cool.
Blend well. Strain.
Add salt, white pepper to taste.
Garnish with fresh cream.
Lot of people do not like to strain the soup, it is totally upto you. The consistency of the soup has to be adjusted with milk to get that creamy flavor.
