Zucchini Soup

May 27, 2009

This soup is simple and easy. It’s good served hot but it’s equally good served chilled, as part of a light summer supper.

  • 6 or 7 Zucchini
  • 1 White or Yellow Onion
  • 2-3 Garlic Cloves
  • Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  • Curry Powder
  • Olive Oil (You can use butter instead)

Slice the onion.

Crush the garlic.

Slice the zucchini.

Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat.

Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion starts to brown.

Add zucchini, enough broth to almost cover the zucchini (about 4 cups) and a tablespoon or two of curry powder. Stir, cover and simmer until zucchini is tender.

Puree in blender or food processor. If your blender container is plastic, let the soup cool a bit first so it doesn’t crack the container. I learned that lesson the hard and messy way!

Reserve a bit of unpureed soup and stir it in if you want a bit of texture.

Enjoy! And, like a whole lot of things, this is great with a bit of fresh-grated Parmesan.

Oh my. This looks delicious. Makes me wish I still grew zucchini. I used to have a porch full of it every year and a freezer full of zucchini bread. I’ll be buying some zucchini this week and making this soup. Thanks! :)

It’s an easy summer staple around here. Makes me think I’ll try growing zucchini next year.
