Definitely a keeper. Easy to make, light tasting, a perfect addition to any meal. I took becky66's advice and used my immersion blender and it worked great--no need to remove from Dutch oven. I plan on using this recipe next spring when I harvest my zucchini. I will can it instead of freezing, though. The only recommendation my husband offered was to have some substance to it. So, I will increase the ingredients, then quarter the zucchini, cook, remove some, blend and add the quarters back to soup. A little more work, but should make it even better.

This is a quick and easy soup that worked great for me when I needed to use up some zucchini I had left in the freezer. I happen to really like curry, and thought the flavor was good. I didn't need to puree the soup since the zucchini was already grated, but I would use an immersion blender if I had to do this - much simpler and less mess. I did substitute some regular yellow onion and chives instead of the green onion, since that is what I had on hand.

Extremely simple and quick to make. Very very tasty with a bit of grated cheese on top

I love zucchini!... but apparently not pureed with curry and cayenne pepper.
