Summer Squash and Spinach Soup-PureeJune 4th, 2016 in Hot Soups, Soups by Julia Volhina
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.
Zucchini “Fries” with Parmesan and SpicesNovember 7th, 2015 in Appetizers & Snacks, Sides by Julia Volhina
Zucchini “fries” cooked with this recipe are much healthier alternative to potato ones: much less oil and less starchy zucchini instead of potato.
I love zucchini, so these taste great for me. It is easy to improvise with spices and their amounts to create new unique taste every time I want it.
Please note, more mature zucchinis will require more cooking time, so probe with a fork to see readiness.
Zucchini with Parmesan and Spices can be served as snack, or an appetizer or a side dish.
