Nicole's Creamy Zucchini Soup


This zucchini soup is savory, delicious, and reminiscent of a creamy broccoli soup. A bit of fresh dill for garnish really brightens it up and complements the earthy zucchini flavor. It's a great way to use up the bounty of summer zucchini!

Cook's Notes:

You can use vegetable stock in place of chicken stock if preferred.
