Roasted Zucchini Soup

Roasted Zucchini Soup

Zucchini contains many nutrients and is a rich source of soluble fibre to feed healthy bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. Soluble fibre makes short chain fatty acids that nourish the cells of the bowel.

Add water to a heavy based pan.

Add the vegetable cubes and dissolve.

Place the onion, shallot and simmer zucchini in the pan and cook for a further 10 minutes.
