The minute those fall leaves start to drop, and the temperature becomes a little chillier, it’s soup season! We grew up on this zucchini soup, and will continue making it until we can’t. It is loaded with great veggies and even though a simple dish, does not lack in flavor. Zucchini soup is not only great to fill the soul, but high in antioxidants, contains important nutrients, and provides fiber for healthy digestion. This zucchini soup recipe is fool proof and can almost be used with any vegetables. Don’t forget a good piece of bread for dunking!

We recently switched our blender to a Beast Blender. And, wow, is it a game changer! It made the soup so smooth and gave use the exact consistency we were looking for. If you are looking for a chunkier consistency, or want some pieces of the food left in then we recommend using a food processor.
