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!
