Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 60 minutes
Number of persons: 4
- 6 spring onions
- 1 kg green or yellow courgettes
- 2 floury potatoes
- 1 onion
- 1 cup of sour cream
- 150 grams grated cheddar from a block
- 8 sprigs of fresh mint
- 1 cube of maggi vegetable stock
- 1 half lemon
- Pepper and salt
- Olive oil
- Cut the spring onions, chop the onion, and cut the zucchini into small cubes.
- Get a soup pot with a thick bottom
- Put a little olive oil in the pan and add salt and pepper.
- Turn on a low heat and add the vegetables.
- Now cut a lemon in half and squeeze it over the vegetables.
- Add 2 to 3 leaves of mint to the vegetables.
- Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and cut them into chunks. This can be, for example, in quarters.
- Meanwhile, put 1.5 dl of water in a kettle. When the water has boiled, pour it into a measuring cup with a vegetable stock cube. The broth can now draw for a while.
- Stir all vegetables well and fry for five minutes until translucent.
- Turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for 40 minutes. By letting the zucchini stand for so long, a kind of thick stew is created full of flavor.
- Now add the stock to the broth and stir well. Then bring the broth to a boil.
- Now add the potatoes and let it cook for 15 minutes until done. You can test this by sticking a fork in it.
- Remove the soup from the heat and add five tablespoons of sour cream and 150 grams of grated cheese. Grate the cheese from a block of cheddar. This has a much better taste compared to the ready-made slices of Cheddar cheese.
- Grab the hand blender and now mix the soup until smooth. Is the soup a bit too thick? Then you can possibly dilute it with some boiling water. Add a little water each time to keep the soup from becoming too thick.
- In any case, do not let the soup come to a boil. This is not good for the cheese.
- Serve the soup in soup bowls with a mint leaf as a garnish.
