    Mom2Rose's Note:

    (Zucchinisuppe und Pumpernickeltoast mit Kräuterquark) Source: "Pumpernickel makes delicious little toasted croutons which can be spread with green-herb-flavored quark (available from specialty stores) to float on top of soup or served alongside. The spinach leaves give this soup a fresh green color."

      This is so simple and mind boggling delicious that it's going into my best of 2009 cookbook! This has everything I look for in a recipe: simplicity, flavor, and elegance; this is worthy of company! I couldn't find quark, but when I do, I can't wait to try it again! I made it with plain cream cheese, although the fresh herbs added a lot to the finished product! I used Vegetable Stock and Pumpernickel-Prune Bread (Abm), both of which I'm sure added to this great experience. Thanks, Mom2Rose! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap #27.
