For less than € 5 per person you have a delicious starter, main course and dessert.
This three course meal costs € 5 per person:
Here’s what you need (4 pers.):
- 2 courgettes
- 2 onions
- 1 clove garlic
- 250ml whipped cream
- 1 cube
- 1 litre water
- 15g mint
- 1 teaspoon Provençal herbs
- 12 tablespoons olive oil
- A blender
Wash and cut the courgettes in small pieces. Chop the onions. Heat 4 tablespoons olive oil in a pan and fry the onions. After that, add the courgette, garlic and Provençal herbs and fry three minutes. Add the cube and 1 litre water. Heat it up to boiling point. Then let it slowly boil.
Pick some mint and cut finely. Do it in the blender with 8 tablespoons olive oil. Blend until it’s a smooth substance and add some pepper and salt.
Mash the soup with the blender to a smooth soup. Add ¾ of the whipped cream and heat the soup for one minute. Don’t forget to add pepper and salt for a better taste. Serve the soup in a bowl with a dash mint-oil and a dash of whipped cream. You can serve it with French bread or cheese straws.
