Curried Zucchini Soup Recipe

This soup, a recipe given to me by one of my daughters-in-law, is a special treat when used from the freezer on a cold winter's day. It calls to mind memories of the "zucchini summer" that was— and gives hope of the "zucchini summer" yet to be!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds zucchini, sliced (about 4 medium)
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons butter, optional
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, combine all ingredients. Cover and simmer until zucchini is soft, about 15 minutes. Puree in batches in a blender on low speed; return to pan and heat through. Yield: 6-8 servings (2 quarts).
