Title: Zucchini soup
Post by: judydawn on October 17, 2009, 01:32:56 pm
Name of Recipe:Zucchini soup
Number of People:4 serves
Ingredients:
500g zucchini, chopped roughly
130g onion, quartered
100g potato, cut into large chunks
100g carrot, cut into chunks
25g butter
500mls chicken stock or vegetable stock (I used chicken)
S & P to taste
2 Tblspns cream

Preparation:
Place all the vegetables into the TM bowl, chop for 5 seconds on speed 5.
Add the butter and cook 6 mins on 100o on Reverse, speed 1.
Add the stock and cook 35 mins 100o Reverse, speed 1.
Check to see what texture the soup is at this stage and either blitz it to suit or leave as it is. (I left it as it was)
Add  S & P to taste plus 2 Tblspns cream and stir through before serving.

Picture following from Thermie007 shows the lovely texture if it is left unblitzed - think you will prefer it unblitzed as we both did.

Members' comments
Thermie007 -  This was so easy to make and best of all hubby wants me to make this for him again! As soon as he dug into it some of the comments he made were"Mmm,this is tasty","Its full of flavour" & once he finished one bowl went back for seconds.
So from us Judydawn, its a winner!! Thank you.

JulieO - We thoroughly enjoyed this soup.  So simple and quick to make which made for a nice and relaxing day.  Good one Judy.

CP - Thank you JD, I made this today when my DD wanted to know what was for lunch. (Hmm, whatever happened to making a sandwich for yourself?) I like my soups a little chunkier too, so I didn't blitz it at the end. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Cheap and cheerful.

Well I had a few zuc lying about & thought this was an ideal beginner soup for me to try,Im glad this time it looks like yours too,unlike my other.I wouldnt blitz this again though as I found it so much appealing with the bits of colour in it.
