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.
