COOKBOOK: Woman’s Day
I wasn’t sure about this recipe when I first read it, and boy was I wrong! Amazing, absolutely amazing!
As my husband keeps reminding me, never tell his mum how good my soups are! When he was young he used to refuse eating any soup related dishes and he now loves them.
Who would have thought the combination of zucchini and mint was going to be such a great match. Don’t underestimate this combo, it will surprise you and it could very well become your new fav soup recipe!
1 tablespoon of butter
2 onions, sliced
8 zucchinis, peeled and sliced
1 litre of chicken stock
1/2 cup of mint, chopped
1/2 cup chopped parsley
Salt & pepper
150g goat cheese, grated
Melt butter in a deep pot. Add onions, stir until soft. Add zucchini, salt and pepper, mint and stir for further minute or two.
Add stock and bring to boil. Simmer for 10mins. Add the chopped parsley and simmer for a further 5mins.
With a hand held blender, blend the soup until the mixture is smooth. This can also be done by adding the soup mixture in a food processor.
Top with goat cheese on each of the serving plates.
