Quick Creamy Zucchini Soup

Kelsey Leman

"This is one of my favorite soups! It's my grandma's recipe that she just handed down to me this year in celebration of my garden producing enough zucchini for a small army! It's creamy and filling but mild. This soup can be frozen."

  1. Stir zucchini, water, salt, and basil together in a pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until zucchini is tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Pour zucchini mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend until smooth. Puree in batches.
  3. Whisk warm milk, flour, and salt together in a bowl until smooth.
  4. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in melted butter until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour pureed zucchini and milk mixture into the skillet; bring to a boil while stirring continually. Season with pepper.

This is pretty yummy! I doubled everything, and instead of mixing the flour and milk, I sauteed the onions in butter, added the flour to make a roux, then added the milk and a pinch of nutmeg t...

Very good, when made with reviewers suggestions. I upped the zucchini to 6c., and lowered the flour to 2T. Added a small amont of seasoned salt and garnished with cooked bacon pieces.

Saw this in the mag and had zucchini in the fridge. Excellent for its simplicity. These are really all the spices you need. But I would add more zucchini as it cooks down quite a bit and I even ...

It didn't state whether or not to peel the zukes. I peeled them. I used an emulsifier instead of the blender. It worked well. I passed the recipe on.
