This winter, soak in rich almonds of a healthy, green broccoli soup.

1/2 cup broccoli stalks

2 cups broccoli florets

1/4 cup chopped onions

3 tbsp almond slivers, toasted

Salt and paper as taste

Combine the broccoli stalks with 2½ cups of almond milk in a deep non-stick pan and cook on a medium flame for 5 minutes.

Add chopped broccoli, celery, almonds and Continue to cook for a further 6-8 minutes. Add a little salt and cook till the broccoli is soft. Puree the mixture coarsely. Transfer to a pan and bring to boil.

Add the corn flour and milk mixture, salt, pepper. Mix well and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes or till it thickens, while stirring continuously.

Serve, spoon the soup into bowls or mugs and top with the remaining toasted almonds and/or a little partly whipped double cream.
