Zucchini and Broccoli Soup

A delicious and flavourful soup,

Sure to warm you up on colder Autumn days.

Update this year~ 2020
I grew Zucchini for the first time this year.
I assumed they grew on a vine like cucumbers.
I was wrong. They grow in the middle of a huge plant.

The flowers/blossoms are pretty.
Due to the lack of rain in this area and
the deer loves eating them, I didn't have a lot.
Next year, I'll plant them in another spot, 
closer to the house.

Zucchini and Broccoli Soup

1 broccoli head
4 potatoes
3 carrots
2 zucchinis-cubed,
(leave the skin on)
2 celery stocks
1 large onion
3 cups broth. I use a 900ml of 
vegetable or chicken broth.
2 tblsp. oil
2 tblsp butter
salt, pepper and parsley.

Chop up vegetables
Warm oil and butter in a large pot and
add the vegetables, except broccoli
Stir Fry the vegetables in the oil and
butter for approx. 5 mins.

Add chicken broth and boil for 15mins
on medium high or until vegetables are tender.
Next add the broccoli, salt,pepper, and parsley.

simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
stirring  occasionally or until the
broccoli is tender.

I use a hand-held immersion blender to blend.
A food processor will work also.

Add more broth/stock or water if 
too thick, to suit your consistency.
