SUPER-EASY ZUCCHINI CREAM SOUP WITH CROUTONS

I think soup is always agood idea, even in summer. And because it’s zucchini season, we eat zucchini┬áin 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). ­čÖü

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.
