Squash, zucchini, whatever you prefer..

Zucchini- suppe

- Dette er oppskriften slik jeg fant den på , jeg inkluderte ikke de tørkede potetflakene og «garnityren», mest fordi jeg ikke gadd å kjøpe det. Men den ble spiselig likevel! Akkurat lett og frisk nok for en sommersuppe, men likevel mettende.

Zucchini soup

1 tablespoon margarine
1 onions, chopped
1 potatoes, peeled and diced
4 zucchinis, chopped
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons dry potato flakes
1-1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill weed

In a large frying pan, melt butter or margarine; add onion and saute until translucent. Add diced potato, zucchini, thyme, rosemary, basil, and white pepper, and cook for 5 minutes.
In a medium-sized cooking pot, add broth and bring to boil. Add zucchini/potato mixture; reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes.
When cooked, puree in food processor or blender in batches. Return to cooking pot, add milk and bring just to boil, but do not boil. Add instant mashed potato flakes and soy sauce and stir well. Adjust seasonings to taste. Garnish with dill weed. Soup may be served hot or chilled.

Heat oven to 350 degrees (tilsvarer ca. 175 grader celcius)
grease and flour two loaf pans

3 eggs
3/4 cup oil
mix these together then add:

1 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda (jeg tok bare litt mer bakepulver)
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3 tsp vanilla
2 cups flower
Mix well then stir in 2 cups grated zucchini.  The recipe also calls for 1 cup chopped nuts but I don’t ever add those since you don’t like them.

Bake in two loaf pans for 50 to 60 minutes.  Stick toothpick in, if comes out clean then is done.

    Hei Christiane!

    We are Americans living in Oslo. I was wondering if you know where I can find dill weed here in Norway. Thanks!

    Hey! some supermarkets have it, and most greengrocers have it – you should check out Grønland ethnic shops, they have vegetables and fruit at decent prices, and often a bigger selection than supermarkets. Good luck on your dillweedhunt! I don’t allways find when I need it. You can always ask your closest supermarket to order it for you.
