Zucchini Soup

You wouldn’t think that zucchini would have much flavor as a base flavor for a soup! But surprisingly enough it makes a beautiful silky, light and tasty soup.

This is one of those quick, easy and inexpensive recipes 30 minutes from start to finish. When making soups if you don’t have Knorr soft bouillon in those little plastic containers, you need to be careful about the salt. Plain square, dry cubes are very salty. It goes without saying that home made stock is best but today there are several brands of ready made stocks that you could use. This is just as good if you are using vegetable stock as well.

Notes

If the soup is too thick you can thin it with a little hot water.
In the photo I served this with a hard boiled egg. But use your imagination, add croutons or a couple of cook shrimp.
Be sure to taste for salt and pepper.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.
