Sweet Almond soup...

Another festive recipe. It's not a soup as such, coz you will serve it after the meal as a dessert or mid-day snack. Polish almond soup - zupa migdaƂowa - is a creamy meatless soup that some families serve for Christmas Eve supper. It is usually served hot for Wigilia and cold at other times of the year (great for birthday party etc.). I have to admit that it was my first time ever making this dessert - although I ate it many times before. It was easy and the result is fantastic. Hope you will enjoy.
P.S. Unfortunately on the photo you can't see all the almond flakes and raisins in the soup... shame.

How to make it...

- 1 l full fat milk
- 100 g ground almonds
- 150 g flake almonds
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- pinch of cinnamon
- 100 g dry white rice
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- handful of raisins/sultanas

Cook the rice al dente, drain and mix with the butter. Cook the milk and add all the almonds. Stir constantly so it won't burn. Let it infuse for few minutes. Add sugar, vanilla sugar, cinnamon and raisins. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add rice and turn off the heat. Put aside so the rice can soak some of that almond milk and all the tastes will mix together. Serve hot or cold.
