Fresh Zucchini Soup

Summer is in full swing and we are now enjoying an abundance of zucchini.

With this fabulous abundance comes a dilemma …. what to do with yet more zucchini.

One of the zucchini I received was quite large and I decided that it was perfect for making a lovely soup.

The best thing about this soup is that it is entirely customizable. Add your favourite herbs, etc.

Some people like to put sour cream in their zucchini soup, but I prefer to use greek yogurt. It provides a lovely zing to the soup. If you do choose to use sour cream, try adding a tablespoon of lemon juice at the end. This will brighten up all of the flavours.

      1. That is the beauty of making a soup and then freezing it. It tastes just as fresh as when it was first made. It doesn’t always work that way when freezing individual ingredients. My family has been tucking into the frozen batches and say it tastes just as good.
