2 pounds of fresh carrots, chopped medium to small

2 medium onions, also chopped medium to small

water as required

 

Another ¼ cup of good quality olive oil

1½ pounds of zucchini (we call them courgettes in England) peeled and chopped medium to small (keep the skins, you'll need them later)

1 medium leek, chopped medium to small and washed thoroughly

 

Method (Looks complicated but it isn't)

(1)   In a large skillet place the first 1/4 cup of the olive oil and heat it on medium high until it is  hot

(2)   Add the carrots and onions, and sauté‚ them for 4 to 5 minutes,  or until the onions are   clear

(3)   Add enough water to cover the vegetables

(4)   Simmer them for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed

(5)   Place the resulting mixture of vegetables in a blender and purée  them until they are smooth

(6)   Set the purée aside and let it cool

(7)   In another large skillet place the second ¼ cup of olive oil and heat it on medium high until it is hot

(8)   Add the peeled zucchini (courgettes) and leeks, and sauté‚ them for 4 to 5 minutes, or until they are just tender

(9)   Add enough water to cover the vegetables

(10)  Simmer them for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed

(11)  Place these  vegetables in the blender and purée them until they are smooth

(12)  Set this purée aside and let it cool

(13)  Place the zucchini (courgette) skins in a pot of boiling water and blanch them for 3 minutes

(14)  Drain the skins and place them in the blender

(15)  Add a small amount of cold water and purée the skins to  a thick  smooth consistency (the same consistency as the other 2 purées)

(16)  Set this purée aside and let it cool also

(17)  Refrigerate the 3 soups (purées) until they are cold

(18) Into individual serving bowls place a portion of  each of the 3 soups and stir them together gently with a knife to form a swirl design(19) Serve immediately whilst still cold for a deliciously refreshing starter
