Yellow Pepper & Almond Soup

I’m not completely sure when I discovered the classic art of thickening soups with a ground almond paste as they do in Spain, but I am grateful this technique became a part of my repertoire.

In my version, I roast the almonds in the oven rather than frying them in oil as you might see in Spain. I think the roasted flavor is even more intense than the fried version because the nuts toast completely through instead of just the surface. This paste produces a wonderfully aromatic background roasted flavor that pairs exquisitely with the sweetness from the yellow sweet peppers.

I like serving this soup barely warmed through, but it can also be served ice cold or piping hot.

Yield: makes about 6-8 portions.
