Meatless Monday Recipe – Zucchini Basil Soup

26 Nov

Here’s an easy soup recipe for you to try:

2 pounds zucchini, chopped
3/4 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
4 cups water, divided
1/3 cup packed basil leaves
Salt and pepper

Cook onion and garlic in oil in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chopped zucchini and 1 teaspoon salt, and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Add 3 cups water and simmer, partially covered, until tender, about 15 minutes. Allow soup to cool and then purée soup with basil in 2 batches in a blender (be careful when blending hot liquids, as the lid can come off unexpectedly). Season soup with salt and pepper.

It doesn’t get much easier than that!!


Until next time,

Have a fit and fabulous day,
