zucchini and spinach soup
Do you fancy an easy and nutritious soup? Pauline (from Paulines Kitchen) likes to share her courgette soup with spinach. This soup is very thick and creamy of itself, if you want the soup a little more fluid then add extra stock.
What you need (for 4 persons)
✦ 1 zucchini
✦ 200 gr spinach
✦ 2 cloves of garlic
✦ 1 liter vegetable bouillion
✦ 50 ml whipped cream (or a vegetable variation on cream of oats, rice or soya)
✦ 2 tsp Provencal herbs
✦ pinch of pepper & salt
✦ olive oil
✦ 1 ciabatta already baked
✦ 30 gr Parmesan
✦ black pepper
✦ olive oil
How you make it
Chop the onion and garlic into small pieces and fry in a large soup pot with a little olive oil. Then wash the zucchini and cut into small pieces. Add the pieces of zucchini to the onions and fry briefly. Add the Provençal herbs and heat them briefly. Add the stock and the spinach and let it cook gently for about 10 minutes.
In the meantime you can prepare the Parmesan croutons. For this, heat the oven to 180 degrees hot air. Cut the ciabatta into pieces and put them on a baking tray. Sprinkle some olive oil over it. Grate the Parmesan and divide this with the black pepper over the rolls. Mix it together and fry the croutons in 5 minutes until golden brown.
Puree the zucchini soup with a hand blender. Add a dash of cream and season the soup with salt and pepper. Serve the zucchini soup with an extra drizzle cream and the Parmesan croutons.
