At the start, there is a simple crème, acreamy soup of this color called vert amande (lit : almond green), in French. It’s the color of the skin of a fresh raw almond, it seems. I have never lived in a place where they grow almond trees, so I’ve never seen the nut so fresh.
Ingredients are green fava beans, stalks of green asparagus, ground green peppercorn, sea salt.
The subtile texture and taste come from the addition of almonds and dry tarragon leaves. All that simmers together a few minutes.
Decorated with the tips of asparagus and pink pepper.
Serve very hot !
