Broccoli Almond Soup
Winter wonder. Oh how I love winters. Nature just gives us bountiful of veggies. Since my husband and I like to have a light dinner, winter nights are mostly soups with home made breads. I saw this recipe of Broccoli Almond soup in another food group. Tweaked it a little to suit our palate, adjusted the quantities of ingredients too and we got a delicious soup for dinner which I served with sourdough Olive Jalapeños bread.
I have used only 2 tbsp of milk but you can use more milk and reduce the quantity of water. Thank you Teji Singh for the recipe.

Bring it to a boil and continue boiling for a couple of minutes to blend in flavours.
