Chilled soups make good summer eating.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan heat oil over medium-low heat until hot but not smoking and sauté one third of the zucchini, stirring occasionally, until golden.
  2. Add remaining zucchini and water and simmer until zucchini is very tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Cool mixture slightly and in a blender puree in batches until smooth, transferring to a bowl.
  4. Stir in yoghurt, mint, and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Chill soup, covered, at least until cold, about 6 hours, and up to 1 day (after that, it will lose its fresh taste).
  6. Before serving, season with salt and pepper, if necessary.

Very pleasant cold soup. I didn't have 6 hours so I put mine into the freezer for a while. Very easy to prepare. DH put a little chilli sauce in his. I', not usualy a big mint fan but this was enjoyable.
