Method

Finely chop the onion and crush the garlic with the back of a wooden spoon. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the onion and garlic until it browns gently. Add the flour and stirring constantly cook over a low heat for a minute. Add the stock and bring to the boil using a wire whisk to avoid any lumps forming.

Add the lemon juice and zest, bay leaf and nutmeg. Season to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add 2/3rds of the almonds, discard the bay leaf and blitz in the blender. Return to the pan to add the cream whisking gently. Chill. Garnish with a little lemon zest and remaining almonds. For an extra lemony hit drizzle some of Nudo Lemoni oil over also.
