"I learned this excellent cream of zucchini soup recipe while living in Spain from a 75-year old woman in Madrid. It's excellent, easy, low-fat, and cheap, as well as a wonderful comfort food. Vary recipe by adding carrots or spinach or other vegetables. Increase potato volume for thicker soup. Garnish with croutons, paprika and chives. Delish!"

I went to Spain the Summer of 2007 for a 6 week study abroad program. I am a Spanish major wanting to become a high school Spanish teacher. I stayed with a young host family and this is one of the recipes they gave me at the end of the trip. This is totally authentic and an amazing recipe. When I went to Spain I highly disliked soups of all kinds. When I came back I was in love with soups. This recipe is one of the ones that turned me from a soup hater to a soup lover. Also do not use any yellow cheese. Authentically it is a white soft processed cheese, the texture and consistancy of cream cheese though I am not actually sure if that is the type of cheese used. When made properly the flavor of the cheese is barely noticed.
blah, yuck... i wouldnt make this. next time i want some good soup i'll make some cream of broccoli. this pales in comparison. sorry.
I only had one zucchini so I used a small potato, a small onion, one bouillon cube, and about 1 1/2 oz of cream cheese. It was fantastic. I will be making this again.
I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could! I used Philidelphia creme cheese and everyone raved about it, even people who usually won't eat zucchini. It was a hit at a dinner party and many compared it to soup from high end resturants. I agree with that assessment and will definitely make again. It is a creamy but not heavy soup with a nice, not over powering flavor. I served it with croutons sprinkled on top. No one even touched crackers with this one.
This is a delicious and extremely low fat soup good on a cold winter day but fancy enough for entertaining. Great way to use up all that zucchini. I made with zucchini I froze 2 years ago. Highly recommended.
Used soft cream cheese instead of velveeta and it was super tasty and made a fast cream of zucchini soup on a busy week night.The other change was adding a Tbsp of beef bovril bouillon since i had no chicken bouillon powder. My 2.5yr old son and I enjoyed it.
Very good! I just made this to go with Adobo Chicken and this soup has tons of flavor. I did add a little garlic and a bit of cumin. definately a keeper!
This recipe is terrific and really enjoyable. Easily adjustable for personal preferences, hardy, and healthy.
Can't recommend it enough!
