Jodee's Zucchini Soup

Jodee's Zucchini Soup created by Chef on the coast

This is a great soup based on reader Jodee Rushton's recipe in Dana Carpender's cookbook, 500 Low-Carb Recipes. To me, Dana is the low-carb guru! She quotes Jodee in the recipe's introduction, "...this is satisfying as a quick between-meals snack, not to mention versatile: 'In the summer, pour it into a mug and drink it cold. In the winter, you might microwave it.'" Cooking time doesn't include the 4 hours refrigeration before serving.

    I really liked the flavors of this recipe - the rest of the family - not so much. It is a wonderful way to use those really big zucchinis though! I didn't puree the soup - just partially mashed with a potato masher. I like the "chunks" better myself. I also threw in some diced carrots for color. A very pretty presentation. I will post pics later. Made for the September 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. It is so easy to prepare, and I followed most of the recipe exactly, the one and only thing I did that was different was to peel the zucchini, and the only reason for that was because my zucchini were so large and the skins were a little tough. I used a combination of yellow and green zucchini and used my own homemade chciken stock for this recipe. Ummmm I also did have some before refrigeration time to blend, awesome. I had it with toast for lunch....but just one bowl!!!! The rest in now in the fridge waiting, although I don't think it can get much better than what I have already had for lunch! This soup was smooth and creamy and so delcious . A great way to use my overgrown zucchini. I think with, what soupI have left, I will get enough for another 3 bowls of soup, although I have had one bowl as I stated and that was quite a large bowl, so if I used smaller serving bowls I would get more for sure. Will make this one again, its so easy and has such wonderful flavours. Thanks mersaydees, great recipe.
