Cilantro Soup Recipe

 

 

Cilantro seems to be one of those things; you either love it or hate it.  If you love it, this is the recipe for you:

 

What You Will Need:

–   roughly 2 bunches of cilantro

–   2 cups of chicken broth

–   1 cup of blanched almonds, slivered

–   2 tsp of olive oil

–   2 Tbsp of butter

–   1 chopped leek (just the white part of the leek)

–   2 Tbsp of flour

–   1 garlic clove

–   ¼ cup of white wine

–   1 ½ cups of cream (or milk)

–   ½ tsp of salt

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Boil the cilantro for about 1 minute.  Then rinse the cilantro under cold water, squeeze the remaining water out of the cilantro and place in a blender.

2.   Add broth to the blender and blend contents for about a minute.

3.   In a pot, add the oil and almonds.  Continue to stir until the almonds have become toasted.  Set the almonds aside after.

4.   In a pot, melt the butter.  Next, add the onion, garlic and leek.  Cook until the contents of pot have softened.

5.   Stir in flour and cook for about a minute.  Then, add wine, stirring constantly until absorbed.

6.   Gradually whisk in milk until mixture thickens. Pour milk mixture into blender along with almonds and salt.  Blend for a few minutes until everything is well blended.  Return both almond-milk and cilantro mixtures to pot.  Stir until warm.

 

 

About Dino
There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
