So simple, yet so delicious. Serves 4
1 large onion, peeled and quartered
2 large zucchini, cut into large pieces
1 stick celery, cut into large pieces
1 rasher bacon, fat trimmed, roughly chopped
500ml good quality vegetable stock
pinch ground nutmeg
freshly ground salt and black peppercorns, to taste
250ml lite cream
2 tsp grated lemon rind
chopped fresh parsley, for serving
Fit the food processor with the work bowl and medium shredding disc*. Select speed 2 and add the onion, zucchini, celery and bacon until grated.
Place grated vegetables and bacon into a medium sized heavy based saucepan. Add stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 8 minutes, partially covered or until very tender.
Season well with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir in the cream.
Fit the work bowl (clean) with the multipurpose blade. Add the soup to the bowl and process to desired consistency. Serve sprinkled with lemon rind and parsley.
- Shredding discs vary model to model. If you have an ExactSlice™ model please use the reversible shredding disc, medium side up.
- Only a small amount of stock is added to the soup, as when cooked the zucchini releases a lot of liquid.
