Week 4 Day 1 of BM #61 -
This week I shall try to clear some of the bookmarks from my folder. As soon as I saw Zucchini soup at Varada's space, I immediately noted it down and tried it the very next day. But I think I changed a few things to suit our taste buds.
I have also tried blending all the ingredients in a vitamix blender and used the soups option. I later let it simmer on the stove top for about 5-7 minutes and it was ready to be served.
