Zuppa di Zucchine…one of my favourite soups served when I’m with family in Italy. It’s hard to find the right type of zucchini in The Netherlands so I make sure to eat this soup at least one time during a visit in Italy.
I’ve learned so much about the zucchini (and aubergines). Before I was introduced to the Mediterranean culture I wasn’t used to eating zucchini and aubergines that much. Now I can’t imagine my life without these great vegetables. Besides all the diverse recipes you can make with these beauties, the zucchini serve as a good source of Vitamin C.
- 1 kg zucchini
- 2 cubes of vegetable stock
- 2 onions finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
- 4 tablespoons of red tomato sauce
- 900 ml water
- 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
