ZUCCHINI and CILANTRO SOUP WITH MINT

3 zucchini
1 bunch cilantro
1 onion
3 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. chopped parsley
2 tbsp. chopped mint
sea salt 
5 cups water or broth
juice of 1 lime
sour cream

Chop the zucchini into 1/2 inch pieces. Wash cilantro leaves and stems. Finely slice the stems and chop the leaves. Slice the onion thinly. Heat oil in a soup pot and add onion, zucchini, cilantro stems, parsley and mint. Cook until onion and zucchini is fairly soft- about 10 minutes. Add 2 tsp. salt and the water or stock and bring to a boil. Simmer until zucchini is completely soft, about 15 minutes. Add the remaining cilantro and let cool. Puree until smooth and season with salt & lime juice to taste. Serve room temperature or gently heated with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of cilantro in each bowl.
