Basil and zucchini are two of my favorites veggie foods..
This cream zucchini soup is really wonderful and really easy and you can serve with some baguette slices and tomatoes and you will have a delicious and simple meal.
Adapted from: My recipes
2 tablespoons of sunflower oil
1/2 cup yellow onion chopped
1 garlic clove chopped
2 medium zucchini sliced
and with peel
2 cups reduce sodium veggie broth
1 cup losely packed basil leaves
washed and stemmed
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
Heat sunflower oil in a large saucepan over nedium heat.
Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent. About 5 minutes.
Add zucchinis in slices and cook by other 3 minutes.
Then add veggie broth and basil leaves. Reduce heat and cook by 20 minutes.
Puree the soup in batches in a blender.
You can use an strainer to push some solid bites but I dont think is necessary.
