Place the almonds in a food processor. Process until very finely
ground. Continue to process until the mixture almost resembles a nut
butter, stopping the machine and scraping down the sides with a
plastic spatula from time to time. Heat the oil in a soup pot. Add the
onion and saute over medium heat until it is golden. Add the celery,
garlic, potato, wine, tomato, and about two thirds of the brussels
sprouts (reserve and set aside the remainder). Add enough water to
barely cover the vegetables. Bring to a simmer, then add the almond
butter and seasoning mix. Simmer gently, covered, over low heat for 35
to 40 minutes or until all the vegetables are tender. Remove from the
heat. Transfer the solid ingredients to a food processor and puree, in
batches if necessary, until smooth. Transfer back to the soup pot and
return to low heat. Thin with a small amount of water if the soup is
too thick. In a separate saucepan, steam the reserved brussels sprouts
in about 1/2 inch of water until they are bright green and
crisp-tender. Add them to the soup along with lemon juice, and salt
and pepper to taste. Serve the soup at once, or allow to stand for an
hour or so before serving, then heat through as needed. Garnish each
serving with some chopped or slivered almonds if desired and fresh
parsley. Calories: 164; Total fat: 8 g; Protein: 4 g; Carbohydrate: 16
