Almond Soup (Looz Shorba)

Also from Middle Eastern Recipe (http://www.ummah.com/family/recipes.html). 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

directions

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