A healthy, tasty soup that has only 5 ingredients!
Preheat a heavy frying pan. Leave it 'dry' (ie don't add any oil) and quickly fry the ground almonds until they are golden brown.
Be sure to keep stirring them as they will burn very easily.
When they are toasted, tip out on to a plate to stop them cooking further.
Chop the broccoli into small florets and pop into a large saucepan along with the water and crumbled stock cube.
Quickly bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender.
Add the toasted ground almonds to the pan, stir, then blend until the soup is smooth and creamy.
Taste the soup, nad decide whether you'd like more seasoning.
If it tastes a little flat, add some salt.
If you'd like more of a kick, grind in some fresh black pepper.
Dish the soup up into four bowls (or meal prep tubs), and top with fresh herbs if using.
Serve with crusty bread and devour!
