Also from Middle Eastern Recipe ( It calls for almonds, but I've made this with walnuts as well. If you can't find ground nuts, then I recommend finely chopped. They should be as fine as possible, as this adds to the creamy texture of the soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start the chicken broth boiling.
  2. While waiting for that, soften the onions in butter in a small sauce pan.
  3. Add flour to onion mixture and stir. This makes a kind of paste.
  4. Once chicken broth is boiling add the onion/flour mix to the boiling broth and stir briskly.
  5. Let simmer for a few minutes, then add the ground almonds. Let simmer 20 minutes.
  6. Add the heavy cream, stirring until heated through.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste, though I find it doesn't need it.
  8. Serves about 4.
