The pureed vegetable soup is the ideal recipe for those who want a light, healthy but at the same time tasty and satisfying dish. Made with eggplants, peppers and zucchini, and a potato to give the right creaminess, it can be enjoyed hot or at room temperature.
Add a handful of rice or pasta and you will have a fabulous first course, or garnish with a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese and some croutons, to obtain a complete and balanced dish.
For a shortcut, you can also use the pressure cooker.
Once the vegetables are cooked, you can blend them with an immersion mixer to obtain the typical texture of the pureed soup, but alternatively you can also leave them in chunks and enjoy them as a soup.
To make a healthy and balanced dish, you can complete it with a generous sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese, a few cubes of primosale cheese or feta cheese and some croutons, lightly toasted in the oven; alternatively, you can also serve it with a little bit of already boiled basmati rice.
For an exotic taste, you can also add a can of full fat coconut milk (100% coconut milk) and some fresh grated ginger.
