Mushroom and Zucchini Soup



This is a lovely soup full of flavor and great for the cooler weather we have been having, and I just adore the smell of the onions, garlic, mushrooms and wine sauteing at the beginning this is a key for the great taste.

Ingredients:

  • one small box of mushrooms 
  • 1/2 an onion chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped 
  • one zucchini chopped
  • one cup of vegetable broth 
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  • a teaspoon of parsley 
  • a pinch of thyme
  • 2 tablespoon of butter
  • one cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of white wine 
Method:

  1. saute the onion, garlic, wine in butter until translucent 
  2. add the mushrooms and zucchini continue to saute for about 7- 10 minutes until zucchini is soft
  3. then add the stock and blend 
  4. return to pan and add desired amount of water depending on the thickness of the soup you like.
  5. season with salt and pepper and thyme 
  6. enjoy with nice bread :-)


So who else has started making soups and aren't homemade simply the best :-)


I spoke at a local technology conference last friday - Converge South on building a lively community around your brand. I was a tad nervous as it had been a while since I had spoken professionally but all went well and I got great feedback. If your curious I added it to the services/testimonials tab. I want to encourage you to have the guts to submit proposals for conferences and even not within your profession as I am a registered dietitian and normally speak to my colleagues but you never know unless you try. I meet some lovely folks and I am sure will enjoy tweeting and learning from them.
