Cream of Zucchini Soup

Recommended Posts

1 Tbsp. butter

1 onion, chopped

2 tbsp. all purpose flour

3 c. low-sodium chicken broth, heated

3-4 medium zucchini (or combination of zucchini and yellow squash) sliced

3/4 tsp salt

freshly ground pepper

1/2 c. evaporated fat-free milk

freshly grated nutmeg

 

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the onion. Saute until the onion is almost tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring for 2 minutes.

 

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the broth, return to heat and bring to a boil. Stir in the zucchini, salt and pepper. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the zucchini is completely tender, about 15-20 minutes.

 

Using a hand-held blender, regular blender or food processor, puree the mixture until smooth. Return the soup to the saucepan and add the evaporated milk. Cook until heated through but don't let the soup boil. Divide the soup evenly among 4 bowls and grate a dash of nutmeg over each serving.

 

Each serving is 3 points (about 1.5 c.)

 

This is delicious cold as well.

Today, I made this soup with some modifications:

 

I used 1 lb. bag of frozen brocoli and cauliflour instead of the zucchini

 

I omitted the nutmeg and added more black pepper

 

I added in more chopped brocoli after I pureed so it had some chunks.

 

I got enough so that it was 1 point/cup. So yummy!

Kait, I bet it is delicious with your modifications. I would definitely try it with broccoli. I bet it would be good with any of the winter squashes too. I'm off to the store today and haven't made this since summer so I think I'll do it so I can take it for my lunches this week.

 

BTW-congratulations on making goal. Way to go. :bcbsalute
