Reviews forCreamy Zucchini Soup
"Very good taste. Instead of water though I used chicken broth. The amount it makes is just right for 1 or 2 people with just a little left over."
"I thought this was bland the first time. The second time I added thyme and we liked it better. Good soup though."
"If you're a fan of cheddar broccoli soup, you'll like this one!"
