The abundance of Zucchini is somewhat overwhelming. But let me tell you!!! Zucchini Soup is one of those recipes that will stick to you for a long time because of how delicious it is. The recipe is as follows.
This soup can be eaten hot or cold. It is so super simple and delicious.
4 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
6 cups diced Zucchini
2 tbsp. Tarragon, chopped or dried
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Place broth and diced zucchini in a large sauce pan. Add pepper and tarragon. Bring to a boil over high heat. Turn down to a simmer and cook, uncovered until zucchini is tender.
Work in batches. Puree in blender until smooth, (fill only 1/2 full and put a towel over opening of blender so it doesn't spill over).
Return to pan and add shredded cheese.
You can add toppings if you wish. Croutons, sour cream, more cheese, sun flower nuts, salsa. It is very delicious on it's own. Can be served hot or cold. Yum!!!
