I am going full force on this better for you diet here in 2016. I’ve been thinking of more ways to incorporate an abundance of veggies into my family’s meals, without skipping on enticing flavors. One way to get that goal accomplished is by making a hearty vegetable soup, but a lot of times my young son(6 years old) will refuse to eat his veggies if he can see them. This problem has lead me to the marvelous solution of pureeing my vegetable soup. Making it impossible for my son to see vegetables, and turning my everyday vegetable soup into something extraordinary and more on the gourmet side. I use Cacique’s Crema Salvadorena to give it a hint of a cheesy crema flavor and just a fraction is needed (as opposed to other cooking creams) to boast a creamy texture. This staying in my guidelines of better for you.
In my opinion every soup needs to be served with something crunchy, whether it be a piece of toast or a crouton or crackers…. but as I said before I am trying to cut back on bread whenever I can. I have found a way to cut out the bread but still give my zucchini soup a well deserved crunch. I made cotija crisps to accompany my soup and use as a dipper or topper. Cacique’s Queso Cotija grated cheese makes it so easy to make these crisps in a matter of minutes… Make this delicious Zucchini Soup with cotija Crisps for your family or friends and watch it disappear in a matter of minutes.
