Zucchini Orange Soup
I thought this was quite interesting in flavor. Very fresh and actually not so "fall" in flavor. Really on a warmer fall day it would be perfect.
Did you know you can eat the flower of the zucchini!? Yes you can! Let me know if you try it!
Zucchinis - about 4 - 3 cups coarsely chopped
Potatoes - 2 medium sized - about 1 1/2 cups chopped
Bouillon cube - 1
Onion - 1 medium chopped
Parsley - 2 tablespoon dried
Mint - 1 teaspoon fresh
Water - 2 cups
Orange rind - grated 1 1/2 teaspoon
Salt and Pepper to taste
Bring your water to a boil and mix in your bouillon cube and dissolve.
Peel and chop your potatoes. Add to your water.
Add your chopped zucchini.
Add in your chopped onion.
Your fresh mint.
Grated orange peel (I used organic since we will eat the rind).
Let it boil, once your potatoes are fully cooked you can emulsify your mixture to get a creamy texture. I used a hand emulsifier.
You can serve and garnish with some fresh mint leaves and bits of your orange peel grated to let the person enjoying your soup know what flavor to expect. :)
