  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan. Add the zucchini, potatoes and onion. Cover and cook for 2 minutes on high heat, shaking pan occasionally to prevent sticking on bottom.
  2. Add chicken broth. Lower heat to medium low. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Add the freshly chopped herbs and milk. Heat. Serve hot with a spoonful of sour cream on top of each serving.

This was very good, had to omit the savory but it was fantastic without it too! Also very easy and quick to make, Thank you for submitting this recipe.

There is no way the measurments on this are correct... I had to alter everything. 1 c of chicken broth is supposed to make a pot of soup? Not so sure about that. I used a lot of different spices to add more to this... I also used 4 c. chicken broth and 2 c. milk... made plenty. I used red potatoes with the skin, and about 8 c. diced zicchini. This tasted wonderful, but I had to write all over the recipe to make it right... I'll make it again, but my own way.

After tinkering with it, I liked this recipe. It's begging for salt and pepper and it definitely needs to be pureed. Extra milk doesn't hurt either. Couldn't believe it called for only 1 cup of chicken broth! I worried that it would burn before I ever got to add the fresh herbs. In place of savory, I used fresh thyme.

Really good with Italian bread and cheddar cheese sprinkled. I also added fresh chives, dill, marjoram and sliced mushrooms.

I don't know how this soup got 4 stars!!! This is the only bad review I've given on allrecipes. Usually I alter everything I make for personal preference, but this needed some major alterations. Use the zucchini onions and potatoes and alter everything else: add ingredients, take out ingredients, more of this, little of that.

This recipe was awesome. i did use butter instead of margerine for flavor purposes. i omited the savory simply because my grocer did not have it. after simmering for 20 minutes i blended it in batches, then added heavy cream instead of milk. topped with croutons and sour cream, this is a wonderful dish

This is a good soup. I think it needs salt and pepper, though. Also, I pureed it after it was thoroughly cooked--it seems more palatable that way to me. Don't forget the sour cream when serving. It definitely "makes" the dish. For a switch, instead of the sour cream, some cheese sprinkled over the top (cheddar?) might be good.
