There’s always time to eat before you really start the feast. Great meals have great starters to get the pallet ready for more food. This chilled almond and melon soup is a refreshing starter that also cleanses the pallet so that you can taste the rest of your meal. Like sorbet, the soup doesn’t stay in your mouth and helps give you a better taste experience when having the rest of your meal.
Almonds have good amounts of protein, fibre, fat, and are rich in manganese and magnesium. They further have particularly high levels of vitamin E which is a fat-soluble antioxidant that helps to protect cells from . oxidisable damage. For a simpler approach to the recipe, instead of creating the melon balls, chop up the whole melon (discarding the skin and seeds). adjust the ingredients in the soup by adding 110 g of ground almonds and 150 ml of almond milk. Remember to garnish the soup with a little mint and a pinch of paprika served on top for a delicious finish.
Start your meals this summer with something special. This chilled almond and melon soup is refreshingly creamy and luxurious.
