Zucchini / Courgette Garlic Soup

We are so happy that we are able to make V sit at the table and eat with us. He's obviously slow – but its worth it. Its so much fun. He still has his moments when we send him to the naughty corner though.

The best bit is that now we give him the benefit of doubt when he says he’s full. That wasn't the case earlier when we used to feed him. We would feed him at any cost – even if he said he's full. He's learning and so are we.

V loves his soup. In his day care, apparently, he finishes his soup and asks for more. Keeping that in mind, I made this soup. I am not sure if he liked it or no and he was quiet full and we didn't force him. We liked it for sure.

I'll definitely be making it again and hopefully V will have it then.

Serves: 3 – 4

750 gms Zucchini / Courgette – cut into chunks
1 Onion – Chopped
1 Whole Bulb Galic – Roughly Chopped
2 inch Ginger – Roughly Chopped
1 Stock Cube
500 ml Water
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt to Taste
Pepper to Taste

  1. Heat Oil in a pan.
  2. Add the Ginger and Garlic and saute for 2 minutes taking care the Garlic doesn’t burn.
  3. Now add the Onions and fry till it turns translucent.
  4. Add the Courgettes and mix well.
  5. Add in the stock cube, mash it and mix well.
  6. Now add Water, Salt and Pepper and cover and cook till soft. – I used a pressure cooker. I let it cook for 1 whistle.
  7. Once the pressure goes down, remove the lid and blend with a hand blender. Alternatively, cool it completely and blend it using a regular blender.
  8. Serve hot with crusty bread / dinner rolls
