Zucchini Bisque

It’s been a while since I have posted any recipes. Like years. Figured it was about time, and I really couldn’t keep this soup a secret any longer.  Bisque is a fancy name for a very simple soup that literally takes minutes to throw together and is simple to modify, my version is not vegan, but with a couple simple tweeks it’s good to go for you herbivores. I also like to make a huge batch, freezing the extra for later, this is a good way to preserve the summer bounty of zucchini.  (Sorry I have no measurements, I don’t really measure anything with this soup….)

Ingredients:

butter

onions

garlic

summer squash

chicken broth

salt and pepper to taste

Yes, it’s THAT simple

First, melt butter in the soup pot, then peel and cut onions and garlic, I don’t bother to dice small, because this all goes in the blender anyway, no need to make extra wok for yourself.

Next, wash and cut up the summer squash, when the onions and garlic are nice and soft and have started to carmalize, add squash to pot.

Stirring occationally cook the squash downimageletting the edges brown just a little bit.

Then add enough broth to just cover all the vegetable and simmer until the squash is nice and soft.  Once everything is nice and cooked, with an immersion blender, or in small batches, blend everything until is is nice and smooth.

This soup is wonderful just like this, I have also served it with a bit of sour cream and cheese, and of course a side of warm bread.

Enjoy!
