Zucchinis (courgettes) have a mild flavour which makes them suitable for a wide variety of dishes. They can be added to soups, stews, even cakes.
Zucchini is the main ingredient in this creamy, vegan easy zucchini soup recipe. I’ve paired it with tarragon, which has a sweetish kind of, slightly aniseed like, flavour, really lifting the subtle, timid zucchini.
Cream of zucchini soup with potatoes
You will need a large pot for this zucchini tarragon soup to accommodate all the vegetables that need to go in it. Since there is no stock cube in this recipe (I tend not to use stock cubes) the vegetables are included for added flavour (as well as bulk). Don’t worry, though, zucchinis are quite watery so the soup won’t be too thick. I’ve added a few potatoes, in fact, to give this soup more substance and ensure it has the right consistency.
You might also like this vegan creamy mushroom soup, where I’ve also used a small amount of potatoes for a thicker, creamier consistency.
Easy zucchini soup recipe
This creamy zucchini soup takes minutes to prepare. There is no need to chop the vegetables very finely as the soup gets pureed in the end. For a non-vegan option serve with a knob of butter or sprinkle with a bit of cheese such as parmesan or another strong cheese.
Scatter over some croutons for a bit of crunch!
