"This was great and surprisingly filling. I blended the ingredients with the hand blender and it made it sort of like a veggie chowder. We had this and a slice of italian bread for lunch. Lasted me until dinner. Thanks for the recipe."

"A little too bland for my taste. It was easy to make and a nice presentation; but, for my family, it just lacked flavor. I will probably look for a similar zucchini soup recipe that has a little more substance and zip to it - just my personal preference."
