This is one of the most easy recipes at all. I'll not say anything more, just check out the recipe.
  • 225g/8oz blanched almonds, minced
  • 3 egg yolks, hard-boiled
  • 1.2 litres/2pt chicken stock
  • 25g/1oz butter, softened
  • 25g/1oz plain flour
  • 125ml/4fl oz single cream salt and freshly ground black pepper

• Using a mortar and pestle, reduce the almonds to a paste with the egg yolks and 1 tablespoon of the stock. Set aside.

• Make a beurre maniรฉ by working the butter and flour together into a smooth paste using a fork. Bring the remaining stock to a simmer in a heavy saucepan. Add the beurre maniรฉ in small knobs, whisking vigorously after each addition until completely dissolved. Whisk in the almond paste until smooth, then cook gently for 30 minutes.

• Strain the soup through a sieve into a clean pan. Add the cream, and season with salt and pepper. Reheat gently and serve.
