Zucchini soup

Our vegetable garden was doing great and we were growing multiple of zucchinis. Since we could not eat them all on short notice, I thought, why not make soup out of it? Soup is super easy to put in the freezer and save for another time. 

The soup is delicious and has a very mild taste which results in most people loving the soup.

DSC_0162

Here is what you would need:

  • 3 liters broth/bouillon
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 4 carrots
  • cream 

 

DSC_0159

Here is what you need to do to get this amazing zucchini soup:

  • Cut the carrots and zucchinis in pieces of 3 centimetres. 
  • Cook the carrots and the zucchinis for 20 minutes. 
  • Add the broth/bouillon and mix with the stick blender. Next you add the creme and stir well with a whisk.
  • You can finish the soup off with some little pieces of bacon or ham. It is very nice to serve with a piece of bread.

 

Can't get enough of soup? Check out this delicious soup recipe below:
