Happy Friday!!! It's almost weekend, and I cannot wait any longer. Last weekend was my best weekend off late. It was 4 days long :). A festival on Thursday and a day off on Friday just made it a super special weekend. After a long long weekend last week, this one seems so short. But nevertheless, I'm excited, cause, it is the WEEKEND!

What kind of food do you eat on weekends? Do you stick to your regular diet or do you let your hair down and eat anything and everything under the sun? I slip up majorly on weekends. While weekdays are designed for controlled healthy home cooked meals, weekends just go hay wire. A trip to the mall results in a pizza or a burger. A grocery shopping spree ends up in a plate of Pani Puri. You are getting the picture, right?

It is not that I don't want to binge or enjoy on the weekends, but I'd like to sneak in at least one healthy meal in there, just so that the guilt is less. And this Broccoli Almond Soup works perfectly well!!

As a kid, a soup always meant a mixed vegetable one with alphabet pasta. Unfortunately, I can't find these alphabet pasta in Bangalore and the soup just isn't fun when you cannot make words with your food. So I have expanded my horizons to other soups now. And this Soup counter in office has definitely helped. This Broccoli Almond soup is inspired by that counter.

So at work, the management decided to introduce a healthy soup counter and everyone is loving it. The soups are delicious and filling and leave us feeling all healthy and awesome. I just loved the various soups I had from the counter and decided I HAD to make them at home. It is also the perfect time as the nights are only going to get colder from now on.

This Broccoli Almond soup is vegan, healthy, gluten free and fits right into an oil-free plant based diet if required. But apart from meeting all the dietary requirements, this soup is also super-delicious!! It is smooth, creamy and tastes of broccoli, garlic and pepper - a combination I love in all forms. It is also a very simple soup to make. It does not require slow cooker or for it to stew slowly on the stove. It is really INSTANT.

The broccoli and almonds are blanched, then sauteed with garlic and onion. YUM... Then the whole thing is blended with salt and pepper and reheated. That's it! If you love to make it yummier, add in some sharp cheddar and you get Broccoli Almond Cheddar Soup. I also like a squeeze of lime in my soup at times. You can go ahead and add all the herbs you like and make your own version of the Broccoli Almond Soup.

Go ahead, enjoy the soup. Wishing you a healthy weekend ahead!
