HOLLY BLOGGY CHRISTMAS-DAY4-GREENCY CREAMCY CHRISTMAS DREAM....




GREENCY CREAMCY DREAM....this is a what i came up with for the 3rd day of the HOLLYBLOGGY christmas thats really so dang cute and its so good to share and be part of this wonderfull world ,all thankx to JERRI, of SIMPLY SWEET HOME...
I love here so dang cute Mousey ornaments coz to me they are mickey mouse in a bead....



CHRISTMAS RECIPES...rings a bell here....sounds familiar there...is on ur mind since end oct or thanksgiving or putting up ur beauty CHristmas tree ,whichever came earlier.....different flavours to different people but at the end of the day the same emotions-warming the heart to the core...sharing love topped with laughter & songs(carols here) round the table......sharing a heart 2 heart chat w mom over hot chocolate when evrybody else;s is fast asleep with only the twinkles from the christmas tree sending a warm glow all along the hall way....
Oh does it all have to do with food-an universal language of love the world over!!!!!

We have many a traditional recipe and many a tradition too and a few additions evry year that are here to stay....
THis absolutely elicious broccoli alomond soup has a stori to tell too and i love the memory behind...


A few Christmas's ago or more like in school i read somewhere(wish i knew where but it mus have been a mag of moms),i read about this brocolli almond soup as a traditional Christmas soup somewhere in the world (suprisingly i havent googled yet),wish me knew where and ever since evry year i make a really big pot on 25th and every guest stoppin by gets a hug-in-a-mug and before me knows its gone....

I dont really remember the original recipe but one thing i can say is i have tried many a variation in this and it always tops.....have given this recipe too ,to many who requested n it never ever fails to cheer....

OF course the main players or stars are broccoli and almonds with some seasoning and u can really play with the variation like try equal amount of almonds and broccoli or say for 500 grams ,300 grams of almonds...it jus tops....
Here am re creating this warming magic again with only a bunch of broccoli thats sits in the refrigeration and yeah a new addition is spinach and yellow pepper.(psst psst-this will be up again before christmas or around Christmas and with a cute twist...will tell u all abt it...stay tuned)
U can season it with cinnamon/cloves/pepper/star anise or any of ur fav spice or jus some stock powder.
Personally we dont really fancy pepper/pepper pwder in soup coz it adds to a spicy hint but feel free....

Put all of the below in a pressure cooker and let it work up on a slow fire for half an hour...
SO HERE GOES WHAT WENT IN
----BROCCOLI
----POTAT0
----ALMONDS
----YELLOW PEPPER
----ONION
----SPINACH
----a few cloves of garlic
----SEASONING(u can make a little bag here with ur seasoning as in spices or even add a carrot and celery)


1)LET THIS COOL AWHILE(honestly right here we had some,mashe it with a big laddle ,spponed into our waiting cups,added some butter ,cheese and cream-microwaved and.....bliss.....the whole almonds taste is fantastic too here)
AND WHATEVERS LEFT GOE THRU A BLENDER-STRAIN IF U WANT-I DIDN....


2)BRING TO A QUICK BOIL AND ADD IN LIGHTLY STEAMED OR SAUTE'D MUSHROOMS,SWEET CORN,BABYCORN ,CHIVES,RED PEPPER...

Actually u can garnish it with whatever u fancy and a blob of butter/cheese/cream is fantastic too!!!!And some parsely and chives too!!!
GRated parmesan and linguine rock here too.....the options are endless.......
Will be blending up this soup agAin with loads of brocolli this time round.....coz broccoli gives in a nice deep green color and u can skip the spinach ...
But this turned out real elicious even w/o any cream...we all loved it ....


Garnish with any i did or jus steamed broccoli-ur choice....
