Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 teaspoons sweet or spicy curry powder
2 pounds zucchini, roughly chopped
1/2 cup grated carrot
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
3/4 cup light sour cream
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes or until onions appear clear. Add garlic and curry and cook, while stirring, for about 1 minute.
  2. Increase heat to medium-high. Add zucchini, carrots and broth. Stir. Bring to a simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, then adjust the heat to keep at a simmer for another 20 minutes. When vegetables are tender, remove from heat and let cool for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Using a blender, puree soup in batches. (Soup should be smooth.) Transfer to a large bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

zucchini soup on table
This is a great make-ahead recipe! Make this soup according to the directions 1 to 2 days before, but wait to whisk in the sour cream and black pepper until just before serving. Remember to add the garnish, too!
