My boyfriend typically does not like zucchini but loved this soup. Gluten free, nightshade free, dairy free.

If you are looking for something that's not too bold for a starter to a main course this is it. I was pleasantly surprised with the results of this soup. Easy to make and healthy. I used garlic salt to taste otherwise followed the recipe. I wasn't quite sure how to serve this warm or cold but either way it is good. Instead of a food processor I made quick work of it with my stick blender. Thank you Cassie. Read More

This is a great recipe. It is exactly what is written: zucchini soup. I use this recipe often. I don't follow the directions exactly. I put all the ingredients in my pressure cooker for 10 minutes then used an immersion blender. Even my kids who usually don't like vegetable soups like it. I top it off with croutons and parmesan. If you like simple yet authentic tasting recipes this is for you! Thanks for sharing. Read More

A good recipe which everybody can add things to to give it a zest. I do about the same thing which i serve in tiny glasses for the aperitif some with grilled 'pignons' (=pine nuts but i don't know the name in english!) some with pieces of fried bacon some with cubed black olives... It's a good way to use the stuff from the garden and people eat healthy stuff instead of stuffing themselves with usual salty apéritif food. I do the same with tomatoes. Read More

I used UNSALTED Kitchen Basics vegetable stock instead of water to give more flavor. I also added cilantro which I love in all soup you could add ANY herb you like in addition to the chives. One last addition; 5 clove. Hope these tweaks inspire you. Read More

I like the concept but felt it needed "more." I added some crumbled cheese after it was done and thought that helped improve it. Read More

Just an ok recipe as written. I agree with those who say it is bland. Second time around I modified it by adding a couple of seeded diced jalapenos. Makes a world of difference. Read More
