Really loved this recipe. The second time I made it used half the butter and increased the curry powder to my taste. Used an immersion blender; so much easier than batches in a blender container. Made a big batch and put several containers in the freezer. Read More

Huh. I thought after all the rave reviews this was going to be amazing. I tried to follow the recipe exactly even weighing my zucchini to make sure I put in the correct amount. I LOVE curry but made myself only put in 1 t. Yeah. It tastes kinda weird. I'm taking it to a family party so I'll report back if they like it better than I do. It seems like something is missing. I'm thinking of adding onions and sour cream to see if it is better. Read More

I used olive oil instead of butter and added a couple of carrots and onions. I also added corn starch to thicken. Simple healthy and delish. Read More

I'm trying to eat healthier so I wasn't excited about the stick of butter. I minimized the butter to 1 TB instead and added an extra tsp of chicken base to make up for the salt in the butter. Amazing! Next time I'll omit the butter altogether and add a dash of cayenne and pepper. I served this with sour cream and chives on top. Highly recommend! And without the butter this is seriously low-fat/low-cal! Read More

This soup is so easy and absolutely amazing. You can get away using 1/3 to 1/2 the butter called for in the recipe. I also added some chopped onion (about 1/2 cup) and chopped carrot (about 1/4 cup). I increased the curry powder to 2 teaspoons. I pureed with my immersion blender and it was perfectly smooth. After it was done, I added cayenne pepper and black pepper to our taste. This recipe is easily doubled or tripled. I made it the first time to see if we would like it and then immediately made a triple batch to freeze. When you read the recipe, it doesn't sound like anything special but it is wonderful. Read More

This was great! - I did not use any oil or butter or salt - I used 2 tablespoons of No Chicken Better Than Bouillon (instead of real chicken broth) - 4 cups filtered water - I added about a half of bag of frozen petite peas for the extra protein and flavor (deeelicious!) - I added 2 red potatoes sliced and not peeled - Pureed soup in a high speed blender and added the soup back to the pot and brought to a simmer to serve... Beautiful and creamy deliciousness! -Making this again tonight!:) Read More

This recipe is simple and delicious! I only used 1/4 cup of butter to cut the fat. My husband loved it! Had to make it twice in one week because he loved it so much! I think the curry power really adds to the flavour! Read More

So easy and delicious. I think next time I'll try it with less butter just for health reasons. I used the immersion blender...much easier than my blender. I also added cayenne. This soup is an excellent way to use up my giant zucchini from the garden. Love this soup!!! Read More
