These days, zucchini and tomatoes are fresh at your local supermarket and can be found all year long.
The vegetables lend themselves to releasing enough liquid while it simmers, you really don’t need to add any. But if you want to, only some water will suffice.
This recipe only requires a simple process of cutting the vegetables and dumping them all into a saucepot, along with the rest of the ingredients and cover.
NO fuss and NO mess.
The vegetables will simmer and start to release water into the pot, giving this soup enough liquid to make its own broth.
You only need about 12 to 15 minutes to simmer and it’s done.
Flavorful and SO tasty, you won’t believe how easy it truly is to make this zucchini tomato soup.
For this recipe, you will need…
ripe tomatoes (on the vine)
extra virgin olive oil
fresh basil leaves
How many zucchini will we need per serving?
When making this soup, it’s best to count one small zucchini along with one medium-size tomato per person.
Do we need to peel the zucchini?
Not necessary, but I prefer to lightly scrape or slightly peel the skins off. Then I submerge them into a bowl of cold water to give them a good rinse.
Do we need any broth to be added?
If you feel you want the soup to be more brothy, then go ahead and add in some water. Also, keep in mind, if you plan to double this recipe, you may need to add in about 1/2 cup of water to give you additional broth to this soup.
