ALMOND BUTTER SOUP RECIPE

Inspired by the Ghanaian Peanut Butter or Groundnut soup I made this Almond soup.

The recipe was bourne out of desperation as I craved Groundnut soup but had Almonds instead.

I doubted myself about the outcome of this recipe as I felt it will loose that distinct roasted Peanut or Groundnut taste.

I shared the recipe on my Instagram stories ‘Ndudu_by_Fafa’ and the common question asked was about the taste.

Honestly in terms of flavour it was delicious, however the only difference was it had a somewhat delicate flavour as compared to Groundnuts/Peanuts.

This recipe is by no means replacing the classic Ghanaian Peanut/Groundnut soup but an alternative way of introducing your palette to different flavours.

Almonds contain less saturated fat which makes this recipe a healthier choice. You can be creative with the type of Vegetables you include and as a matter of fact you can make a Vegetarian version.
