Summer Squash and Spinach Soup-Puree

Recipe for pretty light soft soup-puree made of summer squash, spinach and milk. And isn’t this radiant green color fantastic?

Any kind of summer squash or combination of these will work for this recipe I think, I used young zucchini and yellow squash.

Use milk for lighter version (I’ve used milk here) or half-half for reacher one.

Also, I’ve cooked fresh spinach for this recipe, but I think frozen may work as well if added to the pot later in the process to avoid overcooking, the color maybe vary in this case.

Carrots and Ginger Soup-Puree

So I discovered carrots and ginger combination while working on last week recipe. And I decided to take it one step further: today with carrots and ginger soup-puree.

It is spicy, unusual and absolutely delicious. To my surprise even my better half liked it (and he is not too thrilled with either carrots or ginger).

You can use cup blender instead of hand one, if blender cup isn’t big enough to hold whole pot, just work in batches. But I must say hand blender is much easier to use here.

Pumpkin and Rice Soup-Puree

It is a pumpkin harvest time. That said, it is a time for pumpkin vegetable soup-puree: bright in color and rich in nutrients meat-free soup.

You can use canned vegetable broth for this one, or prepare your own from scratch by following these easy step by step instructions like I did. Just remember that canned broths usually are pretty salty, so you may need reduce amount of salt you add to the soup.

Equal amount of sour cream can be substituted for heavy cream if you feel like it.

Chicken Soup-Puree with Eggs

If you have hand blender this is a soup recipe to try for you: pureed chicken in vegetable broth thickened with flour and beaten eggs.

Hand blender works great to mince chicken meat as well as to break any knots in flour feeling (if needed).

Stand blender or meat mincer will work as well, just mince meat with a bit of broth before adding it to the pot.

Vegetable Soup-Puree with Mushrooms

If you are looking for easy to cook recipe for soft pureed soup with vegetables, mushrooms and cream this is it.

Boil vegetables, add fried onions and mushrooms and blend it all together with heavy cream. By the way, using hand blender makes cooking of this soup much easier.

If you want soup-puree to be more liquid, keep water left from boiling vegetables and add it to the soup at the end to receive desired thickness.

Soup-Purée with Broccoli and Chicken

This bright green colored soup-purée (or cream soup) made of chicken, broccoli and some other vegies is probably the quickest to prepare soup I know.

It is also nutritious: loaded with healthy vegetables and white chicken meat, which are boiled, pureed and blended together for tasty creamy texture.

All that makes this soup very good choice not only for kids, but also for people who prefer soft food.
