Zucchini Soup, Apple Sauce & Apple Water

Therefore, in attempts to help a few sistas out…here are the recipes featured above:

Zucchini Soup:

  • ½ tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 small or ½ medium red onion; diced
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 2 small summer squash
  • ½ tbsp. chives; chopped
  • salt to taste

In a large pan heat coconut oil until melted at med-high temperature. Slice zucchini and summer squash in half and roughly chop into half-moon shaped pieces. Peel and dice the red onion. Chop the chives and set aside. Once coconut oil is heated, add the onions, zucchini, and summer squash. Salt to taste. Sautee vegetables until the zucchini and squash soften slightly and the onions become translucent; you will know the zucchini is ready when the color changes from white to opaque green. Cooking time varies depending on the thickness of the veggies, but it usually takes about 15 – 18 minutes.

Once cooked allow to cool slightly. Add cooled ingredients to blender or baby bullet. Add chives and blend until smooth. Add no more than ¼ cup of water to dilute mixture if it is too thick.

Apple Sauce & Water:

8 Gala Apples

4 – 5 cups water

Core, peel and cut in half the 8 apples. Place in large pot and add water. Place on high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for approx. 20 mins.

Take off the heat and allow to cool. Once cooled, strain the apples and puree to desired consistency. Pour the water in which you boiled the apples through a mesh colander  into a large glass container and give this to your lil’ one as “apple juice”. Keep juice and sauce refrigerated.
