Zucchini Soup

 Hola and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
This recipe is a special shout out to all of my Irish friends. While certainly not an Irish recipe, it is keeping “in the spirit”, it’s green!
I hope you are doing well because this last week almost everyone has been sick or has a cold. The weather has been beyond crazy here. Cold to hot, back to cold. I am really looking forward to Spring. Since I am one of those people who has a cold, I though it would be a good idea to eat something warm and healthy.
For today, I  made a classic zucchini soup. This soup is great for all seasons. It’s great cold or hot, either way its delicious. In Spain it’s a pretty popular soup. It’s so easy to make it, it takes less than 30 minutes and its so healthy. It is also something good to eat at home or to twork. My mom used to make it  often when I was a kid, and I loved it. I think that one of the secrets of the soup is the small amount of cheese that gives it a little kick.
Ingredients for 3-4 cups of soup:
– Zucchini (mine was a little less than 1lb)
– 1/2 onion
– 1 small potato
– 1 ounce cheddar cheese
– salt and pepper
Bring some water to boil in a medium pot. Meanwhile, cut the zucchini and the onion into chunks and peel and cut the potato. Once the water is boiling, add the ingredients and boil for about 10 minutes. Transfer the ingredients to a blender (I didn’t have to use any water, you can save some of the water in case you want the soup more liquidy ) and blend it up!

Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

May the luck of the Irish be with you.
Bon profit!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
