The weather has turned here.
We've had lovely weather for weeks on end.
But the weather has tuned and instead of summer it feels more like fall right now.
These dark, wet and dreary days make me crave soup. Especially for lunch.
But I'm not one to spend hours on end in the kitchen for lunch.
So I came up with this soup.
It's not really a recipe but more a set of guidelines.
Hence the not so specific measurements.
As my mom would say: "Handgelenk mal Pi"
Easy Zucchini soup
for 1 generous serving:
a generous cup of stock (vegetable or chicken)
1 clove of garlic
a bit of cream or some soft cheese ( Boursin)
First up chop the garlic. Heat a small pan and add some olive oil. Fry the garlic until soft.
Chop the zucchini into small bits and add them to the garlic in the pan. Fry this for a bit maybe 3 minutes?
Add the stock and let it simmer until the zucchini is soft.
Pour the soup into a blender or use a hand blender directly in the pan.
When you have reached your desired consistency add some cream or soft cheese. Just one more whizz with the blender until the cream is properly mixed in.
Pour into a bowl and enjoy.
Maybe serve with a bit of focaccia...
