Zucchini Soup

Did you ever have to fight with your 2 year old for anything? I did, this morning with my 2 year old to have him put on a heavier winter jacket, but he wanted his lightweight hoodie. I was pleading, begging, coercing, even threatening him to wear the jacket, but he did not budge, he was crying but he wouldn’t do it.. At the end of it I was totally exhausted and upset and wasn’t sure how and when he got this stubborn. I guess its part of growing up. After getting to work, I was talking to my manager about what happened and she mentioned about her 12 year old son who wears only sweat shirts to school and doesn’t want to wear a jacket. I thought to myself this fight is going to go on for a very long time – though in different ways, I guess I’ve to start getting used to it.

Coming to today’s recipe, I had zucchini soup in a restaurant called Crisp in NYC and really loved it. It’s a very simple dish with just zucchini, onion, herbs & broth-very flavorful and healthy too. I used sage to flavor the soup, but feel free to use any herb you have on hand.

Onion - small, chopped
1
Garlic – minced
2 cloves
Vegetable broth
2 cups
Milk (optional)
¼cup

Steps

  1. Heat 1tbsp oil in a saucepan; add garlic & onions and cook till the onions are translucent, about 5-6 minutes.
  2. Add zucchini; cover and cook for 5 minutes till they are slightly tender.
  3. Add sage & broth; bring to a boil; lower the heat and simmer till the veggie is completely cooked, this shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes. Season with salt & pepper.
  4. You can add milk and simmer for another 3 minutes at this stage to make the soup a little creamy, I added 2% milk.
  5. Use an immersion blender and puree the soup to the consistency of your liking, I left it a little chunky (or use the blender instead). Serve hot with some bread and salad.

I served with spinach-pepper quiche & crescent rolls (Pillsbury brand-love the dough boy). This soup is of to Harini (Sunshinemom) @ Tumyum Treats who’s hosting this month’s Monthly Mingle-Soups, an event started by Meeta @ Whats for Lunch Honey.
