Chicken Florentine Soup with Parmesan-Almond Topping
Like bees to honey, this soup is sure to attract you with its delicious flavor and silky texture. While florentine might sound like a fancy word, it just refers to dishes made with spinach. And a crispy almond and bread crumb topping adds that little extra oomph.
FOR THE TOPPING, TOAST:
FOR THE SOUP, MELT:
For the topping, toast bread crumbs and almonds in oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, 3–4 minutes; transfer to a bowl and let cool. Stir in Parmesan, garlic, and zest; season with salt and pepper.
Deglaze pot with wine and cook until evaporated. Stir in broth and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer soup until thickened, 5 minutes.
To add crunch to the bread crumbs and to release the almonds’ flavor, toast them in a skillet.
For the strongest flavor, freshly grate the nutmeg instead of using the preground stuff.
Spinach sold in bundles provides the best quality. Remove the stems then rinse leaves in a salad spinner.
