Shrimp With Garlic Bread Sauce

I busted out the food processor for this one guys! I know, I was feeling brazen this evening. It was definitely worth the trouble.

There is really nothing challenging about this recipe, but who the heck wants to clean that food processor? AmIright? All those damn parts! Ugh.

Shrimp with Garlic Bread Sauce
From Pinch of Yum

1/2 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 slice crusty white bread about 1 inch thick
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1 cup almonds
2 cups vegetable broth
2 lbs shrimp

1. Heat oil in a large skillet (you will cook the shrimp in here later) to toast the slice of bread.  Place bread in a food processor and pulse to crumbs. Add garlic, parsley, almonds, and a few tablespoons of broth. Pulse until a paste forms.
2. Pour broth into pan and bring to a simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in the bread paste and mix until it looks like a cream sauce. Add the shrimp and cook until no longer pink, 5 minutes or so.
3. Serve this with something green as well as some nice crusty bread to sop up the sauce.

This is for a cold rainy night when you are thinking we don't really need nutrients, right?
