Cream of Zucchini Soup

Recipe by  

"Vegetarian zucchini soup with Gorgonzola. You can use real cream, but I use a vegan mimic cream to keep the calories down, the Gorgonzola adds enough richness that I don't think it's needed."

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil and margarine together in a large pot; cook and stir the onion in the hot oil and margarine until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the zucchini and season with the oregano, salt, and pepper; continue cooking and stirring until the zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour the water into the pot, and stir in the bouillon powder. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer another 10 minutes. Add the Gorgonzola cheese and allow it to melt into the soup.
  3. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Secure the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup in the cooking pot. Stir the creamer through the soup before serving hot.

Very good! I used butter instead of oil and margarine. Added garlic and unpeeled potato slices. Substituted evaporated milk and cream for the gorgonzola. And the best was a pinch of anise at the end.

This soup is phantastic! I omitted the margarine and used only olive oil and used chicken stock instead of the water and bouillon powder. I also used light cream instead of the creamer. I made a larger batch and froze several portions, and they came out great when thawed and heated. Tastes also great with chunks of ham and potatoes in it, for a light lunch, perhaps topped with croutons or toasted almonds. This soup can also be made with Dolcelatte cheese instead of the Gorgonzola, but I prefer the spicier taste of the Gorgonzola.

This was very easy and quick to make. Next time I would put a little less gorgonzola in, I found it a little bit too rich. Maybe 2/3 the quantity just to let the flavour of the zucchini come through. A great flavour base though, I'll make it again for sure!

I made this as written except I used whole milk and chicken bouillon. Very cheap and easy to make. Thank you.

This is wonderful for those that love their Blue Cheese. I did half the recipe, since it is just me right now. As far as changes really none, just a couple of subs., butter for the margarine and half-half for the non-dairy creamer. They worked well. I will say, it is very easy and tasty. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is that I thought the Blue Cheese over powered the zucchini just a bit(even though I love my Blue Cheese) I just wanted a touch more zucchini flavor to come through.

OMG!!! This is the best soup I've ever had, hands down! I used butter instead of margarine, used Silk brand creamer and added a good amount of pepper. I thought I'd have enough for lunch tomorrow, but my family gobbled it right up, no leftovers! Thank you Alexy!
