Sharing is caring!

This Cream of Zucchini Soup – without Cream is a very light and creamy soup made with freshly chopped zucchini and flavored with a delicious broth made with onions, celery, and fresh parsley.  No need for any cream in this recipe!  Just simmer for 15 minutes, then puree.  Best of all, it’s vegan, dairy-free, and keto-friendly!

So my cream of zucchini soup is a terrific soup for those who are looking for something light, easy and nutritious!  In fact, it’s the perfect soup to serve everyone – for all ages. 

This soup is not only delicious, but it’s also one of those no-fail, crazy tasty, one-pot, low calorie, and low in fat soups!   yep, ah, ha… 

And with 6 ingredients (not counting the seasonings) you can easily whip up this soup in minutes for a quick meal.   

Even though zucchini is considered a “summer squash,” nowadays, we can conveniently find it in most supermarkets, and all year long.

A warm cozy soup is an ideal starter to serve on cool evenings. 

So with that in mind, why not cook up a big pot and freeze a batch for any future no-fuss lunch or dinner, right?!   ๐Ÿ™‚

Cream of Zucchini Soup can be served with your favorite sandwich or a salad on the side.   

We enjoy serving a bowl of warm soup along with our Grilled Cheese and Pear Sandwich, or with our Grilled Pimento Cheese Sandwiches to go with it. 

Leftovers are perfect too, easy to reheat at any time.  And the soup will stay fresh sealed in a container for up to 3 days.

Ingredients For This Soup:  (your shopping list)

  • zucchini: at least 5 to 6 (about 7-inches each in length)

  • onion:  1 medium size is good. 

  • celery: 2 stalks are enough.

Do We Need to Peel or Scrape Zucchini?

Not every recipe requires to peel or scrape, and it’s certainly not mandatory with this recipe.  It depends on whether you buy organic or not, or whether you prefer to remove the skins or not.

Best part?  It’s creamy and luscious without adding heavy creams or tons of butter, making this zucchini soup that much healthier and enjoyable!

    Tricia, I too have used mashed beans as a thickening agent, especially with mixed vegetable soups -to hide the beans from the kids when they were little.

    Sounds great and I'm into making soups these days. I also like to add cannellini beans (mashed) to act as a thickening agent. Wonderfully beautiful!
