SPINACH ZUCCHINI SOUP

Spinach and Zucchini Soup

Soup is a time-honoured comfort food, with rounded, blended flavours and soothing, sustaining warmth.

Zucchini looks very similar like a cucumber.  They are available in yellow, green or light green in color.

Zucchini are rich in Vitamin C. They also contain fiber, proteins and carbohydrates. They have lots of health benefits like improving the vision of an eye, plays a role in the prevention of colon cancer.

They can be added to salads or made into soups.

I tried out soup with this along with spinach and the taste was divine...........




For this soup you need


2 tsp. of Butter
4 - 5 nos. of Garlic
1 medium sized onion
3 - 4 nos. of Zucchini
1/2 bunch of fresh Spinach
2 cups of vegetable stock
Salt and Pepper to taste


Preparation

Wash and chop the Zucchini.


Heat butter in a pan. Add the garlic and the chopped onions.Saute them well.


Add the chopped zucchini and saute it . Now add the vegetable stock . Cover and cook until the Zucchini becomes soft.


Stir in the spinach, and wait for it to wilt.


In a blender, puree them to smooth consistency.

Finally add salt and pepper.

Spinach and Zucchini soup is ready to taste..............


OPTIONAL : If you want the soup to be thick you can add potatoes to it.
