The basic recipe - low calorie and vegetarian

1 Zucchini soup should be light and tasty? Then try this vegetarian recipe idea.

➔ ingredients

  1. 2 to 3 zucchini (depending on the size of the fruit)
  2. 1 onion
  3. 1 clove of garlic
  4. 2 small potatoes if desired
  5. 500 to 750 ml vegetable broth
  6. Salt, pepper, dill, paprika powder
  7. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  8. 1 tablespoon of medium hot mustard (hot mustard is also possible, then only 1 teaspoon)
  9. 50 ml of cream or 2 tablespoons of crème fraîche if desired

➥ preparation

First, dice the zucchini, onions, garlic and peeled potatoes. Then put a little olive oil in a larger saucepan and sweat the potatoes together with the onions and the garlic. The potatoes should take on some color. However, you have to make sure that the garlic does not become too dark, otherwise it will taste bitter.

Now season your vegetables in a saucepan with salt and pepper and fill them up with broth. Then add the diced zucchini, stir everything well and season with paprika and a tablespoon of dill.

Let the whole thing simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. You should make sure that the potato pieces are cooked properly. Then add the mustard and puree the soup. Now you only need to season it with lemon juice.

If you are a friend of creamy soups, add a little cream or crème fraîche to your zucchini soup at the end. Remove the stockpot from the stove beforehand, otherwise the cream or crème fraîche will coagulate in the boiling soup. You can also get a creamy consistency if you stir a piece of ice-cold butter into the soup.
