Zucchini Soup

Zucchini Soup

The weather map seems to be a bit backward lately. It seems like the rest of the US is experiencing rain and mild temperatures and we’re about to set some record highs here in Seattle. Granted our record highs for this time of year are in the mid 80s. But either way, zucchini appears to be abundant at this time and if you are one of those experiencing the dreary days, this zucchini soup is the perfect way to use up the zucchini and keep you warm.

Ryan scoffed at the idea of zucchini soup when I first told him that is what I was making for dinner. But despite the fact that it doesn’t sound hearty, it actually was quite filling and healthy too. While it appears creamy, there is no heavy cream in this soup. I threw in a little bit of sour cream at the end of cooking but the majority of the creamy thickness comes from the addition of potatoes. It’s one of my favorite tricks to give a soup velvety texture without adding cream.

Notes

Note: I had some extra zucchini so I shredded a bit for a garnish. It's not necessary but makes for pretty presentation.

    Although I’ve never had zucchini soup, I’m a huge fan of both soups and the veggie. I used a sweet potato and was shocked with how creamy it came out. You couldn’t be more right – it’s healthy, hearty and filling…which can be a tough combo to obtain. As a last minute addition, I added some curry powder and it was good both ways. I love your recipes…keep ’em coming!!!
