Vegan Zucchini Soup

I’m excited to share with you Vegan Zucchini Soup recipe, loads of zucchini are maturing fast in gardens across the country and here are some great recipes to prepare, Baked Zucchini Fries, Zucchini Hummus, and Zucchini And Green Peas Coconut Curry

Whenever I make soup in my home my husband gets excited, he enjoys a warm comforting bowl of soup after a long day at work, even though it is hot here in Florida, a large pot of soup is seen as welcome delight. 

You see we were both raised in hot Jamaica where soups were always prepared and enjoyed all year round.

    Delicious! You should just change the recipe to include a handful of diced baby potatoes and some frozen corn lol. I took the advice from other comments and I’m glad I did. Will definitely make it again.

      Christine, I’m so excited you love it, thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, if I edit the recipe, I risk losing being in one of the top positions in the search bars, defeating the purpose of my recipe being seen by more people.

    We started eating Plant Based a little over a year ago. We have a neighbor who grows zucchini even though his wife doesn’t like it! So they share with us. I was looking for soup recipes when I came across this one. It is absolutely delicious! We added vegan italian sausage to 1/2 of it which was also very good. This is going into my favorites stack!

        I made this recipe tonight and find it very tasty. I wanted leftovers so I beefed up the vegetables and added an extra can of beans. I skipped the cayenne adding more black pepper instead. To achieve the creamy broth consistency that I desired I used an immersion blender for about 8-10 seconds that made the broth perfect in thickness and flavor. I also served this with chickpea elbow pasta. I will definitely make this again. Thank you!
