Cream of Zucchini Soup

Cream of Zucchini SoupAre you one of the many gardeners with an over abundance of zucchini?  Are you sick and tired of zucchini bread and cake?  Are you looking for a different way to serve that plentiful vegetable?  Or are you like me; gardenless and wanting to simply enjoy this summer squash while it is in season?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this recipe is for you!

Cream of Zucchini Soup

The best thing about this simple soup is that it only takes 20 minutes to make, maybe even less if you are quick.  Now that’s something to smile about!  I like to add a teaspoon of dried herbs to the soup in step one.  Thyme is my favorite herb, but basil, oregano or cilantro would be great, too.  It would change up the soup, too, so as you work through your garden, you won’t get sick of the soup.

  1. >yum — I love zucchini.

    might I recommend… chocolate chip zucchini cake, applesauce zucchini bread, carrot and zucchini quesadillas…, those are just some of my favorites and are on my cooking blog — joyinmykitchen.blogspot.com. I also have a carrot/zucchini casserole recipe, if you're interested.

  2. >I have a Southern Living recipe for Southwest Squash casserole. It uses zuchinni and yellow squash, and the frozen would work fine. Let me know if you want the recipe – it's very yummy! BTW, just stumbled on your site – very interesting! Love it!
