Zucchini Soup

If you have an abundance of zucchini and you're wondering how to put it to good use, consider making some soup. To counter the hint of Indian spice, enjoy this delicious soup with a swirl of plain low fat yogurt.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini, cubed
  • 2 medium carrots, cubed
  • 1 medium sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp curry powder or garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 cups fat-free, low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth

Preparation:

In a Dutch oven or soup pot, sauté vegetables for 8-10 minutes, until slightly softened. Add curry powder and stir well to coat veggies. Cook for 1 minute. Add broth. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Allow the soup to cool a little, then, using a blender, puree the soup in batches until smooth.

zucchini soup is great for dieters, Member joannehull

This soup is very good. It's filling and good for those watching calories and fat. I used chicken broth and the second time I made it, I reduced the cinnamon to less than 1/4 tsp. It makes 3 pints and freezes well. It's pretty, too.
