الوصفة بالعربي

Even those who don’t eat zucchini, will fall in love with this heart-warming soup…



  • 1 kg zucchini - كوسة
  • 1 large potatoes - بطاطس
  • 4 cup chicken broth/stock (or vegetable stock) - مرقة دجاج
  • 10 leaves mint - fresh - نعناع
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint - نعناع مجفف/ ناشف
  • 1 cup yoghurt (small commercial yoghurt size) - زبادي
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn flour - نشا

Step by step

  1. Cut the zucchini and potato into slices. Make sure the potato slices are thinner than the zucchini so both can cook at the same time.
  2. Cover with the stock, add the fresh mint leaves and bring to the boil until the veggies are soft.
  3. Leave to cool for a few minutes then blend in a food processor, or easiest with a handheld blender, until smooth.
  4. Rub the dried mint between your fingers into the soup to release its heavenly aroma.
  5. Dilute the corn flour in 2 tbsp. water, then mix with the yogurt in a separate bowl. Use a ladle to spoon some soup into the yogurt bowl and mix. Repeat for a few times to make sure the yogurt is smoothly mixed with the soup then return the yogurt soup mix to the soup pot.
  6. You can skip this step and add fresh cream instead. (Yogurt gives a healthier edge to the soup and a slightly sour taste, while cream gives it more richness at the cost of some extra calories.)
  7. Simmer for a few minutes and serve.

    Another amazing recipe that I have tried out today!! Yummm… ! But while yogurt is a great healthy option for the everyday soup.. Fresh cream adds a totally Devine taste to endulge your guests for the special treat. so I would say the extra calories are totally worth it and go for the cream 🙂
    I was also given a 2hrs notice that we are having guests so I had to resort to chiceck cubes (2 cubes for the 4 cups) in case you don’t have time or ready made broth in Ur freezer Cubes could also do that job.
    Hearty soup that everyone loved! Subtle taste of zucchini with the refreshing mint hint!
