Steam carrots on stove or in microwave according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a medium pot. Add onion; saute on medium heat until translucent and beginning to brown. Stir in garlic, curry powder and salt, and cook until fragrant. Transfer to a blender or food processor, and add cooked carrots. Add 2 cups broth, and blend until smooth. Transfer mixture back to pot, turn heat to high, and stir in remaining broth. Bring to a simmer, and season with more salt if necessary. Divide among bowls and top with almonds. Serve.
