Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 large zucchini

  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 10 fresh mint leaves

  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Clean and cut the zucchini into cubes. Set aside. Peel and mince the garlic and shallots.

  3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the mint. Add the cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix well.
