Spinach and Zucchini Soup

Post by degree10 » Fri Jul 03, 2009 1:31 am

Hello All. Easy Recipes are good choice, if you are hungry and dont have much time.
2 1/2 cups zucchini loosely chopped
2 1/2 cups potatoes cut into 1/2-inch cubes
big pinch salt
2 medium onions roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cups vegetable stock
4 cups fresh spinach leaves loosely packed
1 cup cilantro loosely chopped
one lemon
In a large, thick-bottomed pot over medium-high heat, add the olive oil.
When the oil is hot (but not smoking) add the garlic and onions and saute for a few minutes along with pinch of salt - just until they soften up a bit.
Stir in the potatoes and zucchini. Add the stock. Bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes are soft throughout, roughly 10-15 minutes.
Stir in the spinach, and wait for it to wilt, just ten seconds or so.
Now stir in the cilantro. Puree with a hand blender until smooth.
Whisk in a big squeeze of lemon juice. Now taste, and add more salt if needed.
Finish with a drizzle of olive oil and serve.
