Cream of Zucchini Soup

You would never guess this tasty soup is only 60 calories and 1 gram of fat!  I added some fresh basil to the soup and it added a wonderful flavor.     

1/2 small onion, quartered
2 cloves garlic
3 medium zucchini, skin on, cut in large chunks
32 oz reduced sodium chicken broth
2 TBS reduced fat sour cream
kosher salt and black pepper to taste
freshly grated parmesan cheese for topping (optional)

Combine the onion, garlic, zucchini and chicken broth in a large pot over medium heat.  Bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and purée with an immersion blender, add the sour cream and purée again until smooth.

Add salt and pepper to taste.  Top with a drizzle of olive oil and freshly grated parmesan, if you wish.  Serve hot.

Serves 4




  1. If it ever gets to be soup weather down here, I will try this!

  2. This soup is really good. I actually like this better than broccoli soup!
