Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and celery; cook and stir until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Pour in chicken broth, increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a simmer. Stir in almond butter until dissolved and season with mace. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the celery is tender, 30 to 40 minutes.

  • Once the celery is tender, turn off heat, and allow the soup to stand covered for 1 hour.

  • Carefully puree the warm soup until smooth using a blender or immersion blender; pour through a sieve into a clean saucepan. Stir in cream and place over medium-low heat. Heat until hot, being careful not to bring to a boil or else the cream will curdle. Season with salt to taste; serve garnished with toasted slivered almonds.

to the first reviewer - NO! LOL... Almond paste is a mixture of almonds and SUGAR... Almond butter is ground almonds. The soup should not have been that sweet.(I have not made this recipe -- but wanted to respond to the original reviewer... looks like a good recipe though) Read More

This was a very rich sweet soup. I'm not entirely sure I made it right so I wish I could review it without rating it; I used almond paste and I'm not sure if that's the same thing as almond butter. Regardless it came out pretty good. I don't think I'll make this again before winter and I'll probably wait until we have guests over because this was a tad extravagant for just two people and the leftovers were just odd to me.
