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.

This soup was just wonderful! Even my 5 and 7 year old daughters gobbled it up. A fantastic way to get them to eat their veggies! I will certainly make this soup again.

This soup was fantastic and different for zucchini. A light soup for a summer day. My family loved it and so did my children.
