Zucchini Soup Sounds Zany, But There’s So Much to Love!

We’re big fans of zucchini and incorporate it into as many meals as we can, especially during the summer when the local farmer’s markets and grocery stores are exploding with them! 

However, this zucchini soup recipe is so good that we find ourselves making it all year long. Seriously, it’s a ten out of ten on the delicious scale! Not only is it super tasty, but it also: 

  • Comes together with nine simple ingredients
  • Cooks in less than 30 minutes
  • Contains no dairy, nuts, gluten, or meat, making it suitable for nearly everybody. 
  • Packs in lots of nutrients and fiber
  • Stores well to enjoy for days.

What Is Zucchini Soup Made Of?

There are endless varieties of zucchini soup recipes featuring all kinds of ingredients, textures, and flavors. However, for our version, we chose to keep things simple, allowing the fresh produce and creamy texture to speak for themselves. 

  • Zucchini – Medium-sized zucchini work best for this recipe. 
  • Potatoes – Not found in many zucchini soup recipes, we love the extra density it adds to the texture. Plus, who doesn’t love potatoes in any form? Gold potatoes work best as they have an extra buttery taste and a softer texture. 
  • Aromatics – Onion and garlic add extra depth and a savory base with subtle notes of sweetness. 
  • Seasonings – Oregano, salt, and pepper are all you need! 
  • Broth – To keep this recipe vegan, we use vegetable broth, but chicken broth would work as well. Whichever you use, make sure it’s a low-sodium variety to avoid overpowering the soup. 
  • Coconut Milk – This is crucial to creating the creamy consistency we want with this recipe. For the best results, use full-fat canned coconut milk. The liquid, coconut milk found in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store will not work! 

Health Benefits of Zucchini 

We love zucchini not only because it’s super versatile and easy to use but also because it’s full of health benefits, too! For example, it’s rich in vitamin A, manganese, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin K among other nutrients

As a result, including it as part of a balanced diet may help to: 

  • Boost immunity
  • Improve digestion
  • Reduce blood sugar levels
  • Improve heart health 
  • Strengthen eyesight

This savory soup comes together in around 30 minutes for a nourishing meal you can whip up in no time! 

  1. Prepare the Veggies. Chop the zucchini and onions, and peel the potatoes. 
  2. Combine. Add the vegetables to a large, heavy pot along with the garlic, seasonings, and broth. 
  3. Cook. Bring the mixture to a boil. Then, reduce the heat to medium or medium-low, cover the pot, and cook until the vegetables are tender. 
  4. Blend. Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture until a smooth soup is formed. Or, if you don’t have an immersion blender, transfer the soup to a high-speed blender, and pulse until smooth. Just be careful when blending hot liquids so they don’t explode! 
  5. Stir. Stir in the coconut milk until the soup is extra creamy. 
  6. Serve. Garnish with croutons and parsley, and enjoy warm!

  1. not bad but you maybe could put a note for people that oregano is strong spice and not to use as much oregano if they are not use to having it that strong. they might want to cut back. for me it was to strong. that’s all I tasted. it kinda over powered the soup. next time I will cut back and for me it will be delish. thank you for recipe. I love all your recipes. I have made quite a few. ❤ hope you don’t mind my text.
