Zucchini soup

This recipe I learned from my mother. She makes it usually  in the summer and early autumn when there are a lot of fresh zucchini in the garden of our village house.

But It could be prepared either from fresh or frozen vegetables. It is one of my favourite –  easy to prepare, healthy and fresh.

It is also very delicious and it is not time consuming. You could make it for your family as everyday meal or even for special guests.
