Mediterranean cuisine for every day

Zucchini and carrot soup

10 comments Sep 17th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

I am a big soup fan and certainly can eat soup every day. Cold or hot, I do not mind. I like to experiment and combine tastes and textures. This recipe I saw at a German language blog of a fellow foodie called Kochschlampe.

The carrot does something to the simple zucchini soup. It seems to smoothens it and also it adds additional texture, which I like.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

cooking time: 20 minutes

difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

  • 2 carrots
  • 4 zucchini
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 liter of vegetable stock
  • some parsley
  • salt and pepper

Preparation:

Peel the carrots and cut them into sticks. Fry them in a pot with some olive oil for approx. 5 minutes. Then remove them from the pot and set them aside.

Meanwhile peel and dice the onion. Put it into the pot to fry. Cut 3 of the 4 Zucchini and add them to the pot. Fry for a couple of minutes, then add the diced garlic and after 2 minutes the soup. Stir a bit and let it boil for 10 minutes. Then mix in a blender until smooth.

Now cube the remaining Zucchini and add it to the pot. Also add the carrot and the soup out of the mixer and boil for 5 minutes.

Season with salt, pepper and parsley.
