My grandma used to make this every summer, when the garden was over flowing with zucchinis. I couldn't find the recipe for ages, until my parents moved and they found her old recipe book. Everything about this brings me back to slow, hot Virginia summers - spending time on the porch sipping iced tea and playing in the sprinkler.


  1. Chop the zucchini, leeks, onion and garlic and cook in a large sauce pan with the butter until the onions are clear.
  2. Add curry powder and salt and pepper to taste. Cook 5 more minutes.
  3. Puree veggies in blender with chicken broth. Allow to cool.
  4. After cooled, add buttermilk. Refrigerate.
  5. Serve cold and garnish with cilantro.
