Zucchini and Yellow Squash Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This easy to prepare soup is the creation of sous-chef Carol McKenzie of the Sebanton restaurant in Longmont, Colorado. I found it in the RSVP section of a July 1987 issue of Bon Appetit. It seems like a perfect way to use up that surplus of squashes your summer garden produces!
