Zucchini has a light and delicate flavor, and the other vegetables in this soup add richness and texture.  It’s a low-carb soup, simple to prepare, and packed with vitamins.

Zucchini Soup


  • 3 pounds zucchini, sliced
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 6-7 cups water
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Fry the onions, celery and carrots in a large pot over a high flame until onions become translucent (5 minutes).
  2. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring for 2 more minutes. Add the water so the vegetables are well covered and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame and cook for 40 minutes.
  3. Remove from stove and allow to cool.
  4. Puree the contents of the pot using a hand blender. You can blend the ingredients until they are entirely smooth, but I like to leave small pieces of vegetables so you can see the carrot in the soup.
  5. Add salt and pepper, and return to the stove. Bring the soup to a boil, lower the flame and allow it to cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Stir in the cream and continue cooking for a several minutes without letting the soup boil.
  7. Serve hot.
