zucchini soup

*i usually double this*

Zucchini Soup

It may not be much to look but I love this soup! It can be very healthy and yet is still extremely tasty. The recipe calls for cheese, sour cream, and bacon as garnish which is delish but not a requirement

1 cup chopped onions

2 T. butter (I usually use 1 T)

3 cups sliced zucchini

2 cups chicken broth

1/4 t. salt

1/8 t. pepper

½ cup half-and-half (I often substitute with regular milk and still think it tastes very yummy)

1 cup grated cheddar cheese (optional)

1/2 cup sour cream (optional)

4 slices bacon, cooked until crisp, then crumbled

In a large saucepan cook onions in melted butter until tender. Add sliced zucchini and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Simmer until tender (about 15 min.) Add salt and pepper. Cool slightly. Pour mixture into blender and puree it. Stir in half-and-half (or milk). Return to saucepan and reheat, but do not boil. Garnish with grated cheese, sour cream, and bacon bits. Makes 3 servings.
