This is delicious! Uses up that prolific weed called zucchini. I did make some minor changes for our tastes. Instead of water I used chicken broth, added a bay leaf and pureed the boiled vegetables, then adding the sliced zucchini along with some onions. Didn't have any tamari so I left it out, it was not missed. This will be made again! Thank you Tish for a very nice soup that uses up zucchini. :)shirley(:
