Curry Zucchini Soup

  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 7 large zucchini cut into chunks
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup melted butter mixed thoroughly with 1/4 cup of flour
  • salt & pepper

In a large pot, saute onion in olive oil until transparent. Add thyme and chopped zucchini. Cook until soft. Add curry powder, cream & stock. Bring to a boil; add butter & flour mixture. Reduce heat and simmer soup for 15 minutes. Puree soup in blender or use an immersion blender.  Season with salt & pepper to taste.

**It’s the perfect fall/winter soup. My mom always makes it special on Christmas Eve. We look forward to it year after year. In the soup pictured above, I used whole milk instead of Half & Half. It tastes just fine that way. Serve with some crusty/cheesy bread or top with some bits of bacon and you have yourself a wonderfully hearty meal. ***

    this looks wonderful :) i might try to veganize this! i can replace the milk & butter just fine, but i wonder if veggie broth would work instead of chicken?

    kristen: I think veggie broth would be just fine!

  • October 16, 2007

    Mmm, I need to make a variation of this!

    Yum, this looks delicious! I have to ask though, if you had to take the dairy out (my bf is lactose intolerant) – what would you put in instead? A potato? Celery root?

    melisser- you should! lemme know how it turns out

    radish- I’d put a potato in for sure. Or you might wanna try coconut milk! (my vegan friend erin suggests that) … The best part is the creamy consistency. But the potato might do the trick Or have fun and add both!
