directions

  • Heat olive oil in a large soup pot.
  • Sauté sliced garlic until golden, then add remaining vegetables and sort of"stir fry" it for about 3 minutes.
  • Add water, bouillon cubes, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to med-low.
  • Simmer for about 20-30 minutes until veggies are very tender.
  • Remove from heat, add evaporated milk.
  • Using a hand blender, puree soup until smooth.
  • Adjust salt and pepper.
  • Serve with grated cheese and croutons.
  • Note:You can add whatever vegetables you have on hand to this--spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, etc.
  • For a special soup, boil 1 lb shrimp (in their shells), reserving broth for cooking the soup.
  • Prepare soup the same way, adding cooked (peeled) shrimp the last minute of cooking (just to heat through).
  • Reserve 1/4 lb of shrimp for garnish.

    I made this soup yesterday and followed the recipe as closely as I could, I did not have evaporated milk but found a recipe for it on this site and it worked perfectly. The soup was absolutely delicious, I loved the flavour and the texture. I will be making this soup again. Thank you

    Loved the soup, I left out the regular potatoes because I am watching my carb intake. I doubt that changed it much though. The flavor was perfect.

    Very tasty soup, my husband really liked it. BUT... it makes a LOT! I had to cook it in two pots until I ran it through the food processor. Good use of zucchini.
