Zucchini soup

Zucchini soup

We will put the cleaned, washed and chopped vegetables to boil, but be careful not the zucchini. We will put the zucchini only when the rest of the vegetables are half cooked, if we put it together with the rest of the vegetables ... it will boil too much and it will crumble.

Once the vegetables are cooked, we will put the delicate vegetables together with the olive oil, after which we will let them boil for about 5 minutes.

Turn off the heat and add the finely chopped parsley. Enjoy !!!

a teaspoon of turmeric
a tablespoon of olive oil

Pumpkin cream soup simple and tasty recipe

Pumpkin cream soup with croutons and pumpkin chips. A creamy soup with tender zucchini and leurda, tied with rice (instead of the eternal potato), very flavorful and velvety. Perfect for younger children (pay attention to seasoning!). It is very easy and very quick to prepare - you can eat it in 30-40 minutes.

I really like pumpkins (especially zucchini and squash - see more recipes here) and I prepare them quite often in summer, when I find them in the market and they have a low price. I prepare them when fried, when fill, when gratin. This time I wanted to make a fine soup and I succeeded perfectly! It is an improvised recipe by me, orienting me after I had at hand and logically judging the preparation stages and the applied techniques. I treated this soup like a fluid and mixed risotto - it has a "sofritto" base, the rice is also hardened and then I added the vegetables and quenched everything with liquid (much more than a risotto). You can find it here authentic risotto recipes.

Starting from the premise that zucchini is a watery vegetable and a bit bland, I knew I would have to give it life with more spicy flavors and vegetables (onion, garlic, leurda). Wanting to make cream soup, I knew I would have to use a thickener and I gave up potatoes in favor of rice. And I did well! A cup of rice tied me wonderfully 3 liters of soup! And how fine this soup is! It has a velvety texture and a fluid, silky consistency. You will definitely like it!

Although it looks spectacular, it does pumpkin cream soup it is a cheap one, available to anyone.

The final touch is given by the bread croutons with garlic (to be bought from Kaufland), the cepsoara and the transparent slices of garlic. pumpkin chips (recipe here).

Slicing pumpkin chips is easy with a manual slicer like this (can be purchased here).

Chopped leurda leaves can be used instead of cepso - they will give it a very pleasant taste. You can find it here more recipes with leurda.
