I think soup is always agood idea, even in summer. And because it's zucchini season, we eat zucchini in all forms and variations at the moment, and also from time to time some zucchini cream soup.
Usually, at this time of the year, I can use some from my granny's garden in Burgenland. But unfortunaltely, hailstorms have destroyed her whole garden (and all of her harvest). 🙁
So the zucchini must be purchased en masse now, because they are for me somehow linked to the summer and the summer holidays ...
The recipe is from my mother-who always conjures incredibly good soups. It is very quick to prepare and very easy to make. The whipped cream, which is listed in the recipe, is also not a must and can be reduced.

- 1 Zucchini
