The abundance of summer is upon us. My zuccini plant thinks it is a Super Hero. Here is a quick recipe that will turn any number of fresh vegetables into a terrific soup.
Wash and cut 1 1/2 C vegetables and 1 small potato. Add to Deep Steam Case with 1 tsp olive oil, 1 C water and a pinch of salt.
Cook 6 to 8 min in the microwave at full power (800 w).
Puree using a blender. For more flavor and a creamier texture add milk, cream or cream cheese during blending.
Options: Try this soup recipe with zuccini, carrot, eggplant, pumpkin, leek, broccoli, spinach, chard, green beans, cauliflower or onion.
Garnishes: herbs, Spices, Seeds, Nuts, Cheese, Cereals, Sauces, Vinegars, or Crisps.
And remember: 5 1/4 to 7 oz of vegetables are considered a full serving in a meal.
