Creamy zucchini soup with basil
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 vegetable stock or chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bouquet of fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 5 ml water
  • pepper
Let's get started!
  1. Chop the onion into little pieces and the zucchini in little cubes.
  2. Heat the oil, add the chopped onion and simmer it until is glassy. Then add the courgette and sprinkle with pepper, mix thoroughly. After a couple of minutes pour water into the pan and add the stock and the salt.
  3. Cook it until the zucchini becomes soft, then remove from heat and add the basil. Pour the soup into a blender, puree it until is masher. The blended soup can be served immediately, not requires cook.
  4. Pour a little bit of peanut oil on the served soup. I suggest to serve with toasted roll rings.
