Asparagus Puree Soup with Zucchini and Cod

To prepare the Asparagus Puree Soup I used some trumpet courgettes since it is the end of the season, but if you don’t find them, the round courgettes are fine. And if you don’t even find those, use the classic dark ones, using a little less water and a couple of courgettes more to ensure that the cream remains tasty and not too watery.

To give body to the cream, I used potatoes. Remember to remove at least half of the broth before blending everything, and possibly add more later if it is too thick.

I seasoned the cod and left it to flavour while I was preparing and cooking the soup. When the soup was almost cooked I put them in the oven since the fish takes a little while to cook. Once cooked and golden, I took them out of the oven and assembled the Asparagus Puree Soup with Zucchini and Cod, garnishing the dish with black sesame seeds and Sriracha, a typical Thai spicy sauce based on garlic and chilli to give both an extra touch to taste and colour, if you don’t like spicy, omit it or replace it with tomato or pepper paste.

If you like vegetable soups, I recommend the Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Soup and Sausage or
