Zucchini Soup

12 Mar

Are you ready for the new season? The springy feel in the breeze and first bloomers in my back yard are already inspiring me. After spending whole day outdoors, I have prepared zucchini soup with chickpeas to ease the fatigue. This green soup is a simulating one with distinctive flavor of cumin.


Ingredients (4 servings):

Zucchini Soup

1 mid-size zucchini

1 onion

Chickpeas, boiled, 1 cup

Olive oil, 1 tablespoon

Water, 4 cups

Cumin, 1 teaspoon

Salt

Preparation Method:

Trim the ends of zucchini and cut it into bite-size pieces.  Cut onion into 4 pieces. Place the vegetables in the cooking pot; add the olive oil and boiling water. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Then puree with hand blender until completely smooth.  Add the cumin and salt, mix and heat over low for 10 minutes.

Kitchen Safety Attention: Hand blenders need to be handled with care to prevent injury. Follow the manual and safety instructions of your appliance.

    Yes please. I have made a lot of soups and and a lot of things with zucchini. Why have I never made zucchini soup. I love how simple this recipe is.
