Curried Zucchini Soup

Source: Everyday Food, September 2005


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini (about 3 medium), sliced 1 inch thick
  • 1 baking potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted, for garnish


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and 1 tablespoon salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and curry powder; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Add zucchini, potato, and 4 cups water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  3. In batches, puree soup in a blender (do not fill more than halfway) until smooth; serve immediately, or let cool, and refrigerate in an airtight container until chilled. Garnish with toasted almonds.

    I discovered this recipe on a blog called 'cheaphealthygood' which praised it highly. Having 2 largish zucchinis, I decided to try it. And am I glad I did! For such a simple recipe, which I followed exactly, it was amazingly good. The whole family loved it, and came back for leftovers, which is a very good sign. I served it warm.

    I have had this soup before. My friends recipe included carrots. I also used chicken broth or veggie broth depending on what I had on hand. It is very good.

    I used a sweet potato instead of a baking potato and the results were superb!

    what? applesauce is called for in ingredient list.

    This was missing something. I added some cinnamon and applesauce until I felt the taste was right. Tastes good to me. I will definitely make this again.
