Recipe
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a low heat, add the onion and almonds and cook
gently for 3-4 minutes, until the onion is softened and the nuts are golden. Stir in the sprouts.
 Pour in the stock, bring to the boil and add the bouquet garni. Reduce heat, cover and
simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the sprouts are tender.
 Using a draining spoon, lift out the sprouts, onion and nuts and transfer to a blender or food
processor. Remove and discard the bouquet garni. Add a little of the liquid to the sprouts
then whizz to a smooth purée. Pour back into the pan, stir and season to taste with nutmeg
and pepper.
 Stir in the cream, if using, and warm through. Serve garnished with a sprinkling of chives or
toasted almonds.
