As we are at less than a week for Christmas it’s time to start thinking about meals, menus and so on. Some years ago we were just waiting for the holidays to finish to get back to our usual digestive comfort, but about two years ago we decided to make a change and be more conscious about food, what to eat and how to eat it.

It will be in another post that I’ll explain why we don’t mix carbs and proteins in the same meal, but today I want to share how I do this yummy zucchini soup.

You will need the following:

  • Zucchini
  • Potatoes (half the weight of the zucchini)
  • Butter (optional)
  • Salt
  • Water

I used 3 big zucchini (about 1,200 gr) and 2-3 potatoes (600 gr) and this served 4 people. If you want to make more, just remember to apply the rule of half potatoes regarding zucchini.

I added some water to the pressure cooker, just to cover the bottom. I peeled the zucchini (only if they are not organic) and the potatoes, diced them and cooked them with 10 gr butter and a pinch of salt for about 8-10 minutes.

Then I processed all until smooth in a food processor and served. In this occasion, I added some croutons which are really easy to make. I cut a loaf of bread into dices and fried them with a little olive oil in the pan.

      Thank you so much, Katrin!! We love zucchini, we eat it in so many different ways!
      I love the china too, but it is not dishwasher safe if we want to keep the golden thing…

      Thank you, Sue. We love zucchini no matter how we cook it or even raw.
      The china was a present from my mom, we use it all the time but have to wash on hand

    I love a healthy homemade soup. I think I need a few bowls of this now to ward off this annoying cold I have 🙂 Hope you had a fantastic Christmas. Thanks for linking to #CookBlogShare. Hijacked By Twins will be hosting the next link up on Tuesday 5th Jan. Hope to see you there

      Hi, Hayley. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. I’m sure this soup would make you feel better because it is light, but some homeopathy would help you too. That’s the only thing we use at home, let me know if you need some advice on this.

      Take care, I wish you have an awesome 2016.

    Yum! I bet this tastes so good. I always find courgette (zucchini) soup to be a bit watery, so with the added potatoes, I bet this this delicious. I’m really into making my own soups, especially this time of year when you just want something warm at lunch.

      It is delicious Sally, and as you say with the added potatoes is not watery at all. Even if it is too thick you can add some water, rice drink or oatmeal drink.
