Chilled Zucchini Soup and Stuffed Bread




It is finally hot out. So it was the perfect night for a chilled soup. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com

Ingredients

2 tablespoons margarine

2 onions, chopped
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
8 zucchinis, chopped

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

4 cups chicken broth

1 cup whole milk

1/4 cup dry potato flakes

1 tablespoon soy sauce

4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill weed

Directions

  1. In a large frying pan, melt butter or margarine; add onion and saute until translucent. Add diced potato, zucchini, thyme, rosemary, basil, and white pepper, and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. In a medium-sized cooking pot, add broth and bring to boil. Add zucchini/potato mixture; reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes.
  3. When cooked, puree in food processor or blender in batches. Return to cooking pot, add milk and bring just to boil, but do not boil. Add instant mashed potato flakes and soy sauce and stir well. Adjust seasonings to taste. Garnish with dill weed. Soup may be served hot or chilled.
We had leftover Grilled Skirt Steak and Peppers and Onions. I made a filled bread with those items and added American Cheese, shredded Mozzarella and Ricotta. Baked the bread on my Pampered Chef Baking Pan. This is my favorite pan for bread.
