Broccoli & Zucchini Soup

Grandparents had attended a grand aunt's 80th birthday dinner few weeks ago. Upon returning, gramma couldn't stop raving about the simple food, especially the soup. She said it was Zucchini & Almonds soup. Today, finally i got around to making it. We decided to give it a bit of twist, and try the soup. Here is what we made,

Ingredients:

Zucchini - 1 medium- chopped roughly
Broccoli - 4-5 florets
Almonds - 5- 6

How you make it:-

1. In a pan, add a cup of water and cook the Broccoli
2. In Another pan, add some oil/butter, add the zucchini and saute till it gets cooked
3. Cool off the vegetables, add the almonds to the mixer  and blend into a fine puree
4. Pour into a pan/pot and let it boil, adding required amount of salt, pepper and herbs. After boiling a few minutes, add some milk as well.
