This is a remake of a very old post. My husband walks in from the garden with a bunch of zucchini everyday so I’m cracking out all of my zucchini recipes. I made this zucchini soup recipe 4 years ago and I remember it was very easy and delicious. It’s also a recipe that I can make quickly – only 10 – 15 minutes!
Blender Zucchini Soup
This is essentially a blender soup. Though I use the microwave too, you could make the whole recipe in a Vitamix blender. You would just add everything in the blender and blend on high for up to 10 minutes. The heat from the blades cooks the soup! You can learn more about that here.
This soup recipe is one of those times I’m glad I invested in a Vitamix blender. However you don’t need a Vitamix to make this recipe. A food processor or high speed blender will work too.
