- 4 zucchini
- 80 grams white onion
- 1/3 lemon
- 5 grams butter
- reduced fat milk (20 cl.)
- 100 grams grated parmesan cheese
- 4 sprigs fresh thyme
- 6 teaspoons olive oil
- Peel the zucchinis, cut them into cubes, and blanch them in boiling water. When they are tender, drain them and put them in a blender. Keep the zucchini cooking water for later.
- Chop the onion. Peel the lemon and finely dice the flesh.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute the onions with a pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons of the zucchini water over low heat. Cover to soften the onions. Pour the milk over the onions and simmer.
- Once the milk has heated through, pour the contents of the saucepan into the blender. Add the grated parmesan cheese and 2 teaspoons of salt. Add a little water or milk if the soup is too thick. Blend for 3 or 4 minutes.
- Ladle the soup into small bowls. Add diced lemon, thyme leaves, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and a little pepper to each bowl and enjoy.
