Chilled Zucchinies & Mint Soup

 

CHILLED ZUCCHINI & MINT SOUP

INGREDIENTS (for ten glasses)

1.200 kg zucchini

2 tablespoons olive oil

25cl fresh cream

1 bunch fresh mint

salt

pepper

10 thin slices of bacon 

 

PREPARATION:

We always say that vitamins are in the skin ... the problem with zucchini is that if it is prepared a little in advance, skin zucchini may release some bitterness ..

So here, as I needed to move me and make this soup a little in advance, I completely peeled zucchinies before cutting them into pieces.

 

 

 

 

Sauté the zucchini in oil without taking color.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cover with water up, put on low heat for 25-30 minutes covered. With a long cooking, you get a "velouté" texture

If you like more matter, cook a little less zucchinies.

Giving a tour of the pepper mill.

 

 

  

 

Wash and dry a bunch of mint

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a blender, place the zucchinies and juice, cream and mint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mix until the desired smoothness (smooth or with a few small pieces)

 

Keep cool for 2 hours minimum.

 

 

 

 

 

Serve ice cold in glasses or in Bodega glasses

For the presentation I chose to put  in the glasses a slice of crunchy bacon. To grill the bacon, place it on a Tefal oven plate and put it under the broiler, until well grilled bacon .

For decoration, a simple mint leaf can also do the trick ...
