    I toasted the almond first and then ground them in the twister jar…wasn’t paying very close attention to the instructions. But it worked just fine, and made a stunning soup! Brilliant bright green color, incredibly smooth texture, strong broccoli and almond flavors. Really delightful, and it got huge compliments from all who tried it.

    Followed as written..was excellent..toasted almonds first and placed them in whole.
    Delicious creamy and fast….great to freeze a container for later time.
    I also used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth.

    Love this healthy and hearty soup. Super creamy and delicious. I used almond meal instead of whole almonds since that’s what I had on hand. It definitely needed a bit more salt and pepper, but otherwise delicious. Finish with some shredded cheddar on-top and you’ve got a meal!

    I was tempted to add some garlic, but didn’t. I followed the recipe exactly (except I added the about 2/3 cup extra broccoli that I didn’t want to waste, and used 1/4 tsp pepper b/c I like things peppery) and it came out great. Good flavor despite few ingredients. I might serve it as a starter next time I host a gathering. It seems too light for a full meal.

    Followed just as written.
