Zucchini Carrot Soup





This recipe is from  Hot Eats and Cool Reads 


Ingredients:

1 medium sized onion, finely diced ( used a sweet onion)
3 tablespoons butter ( used unsalted butter)
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup water ( subbed for chicken broth)
2 cups milk ( used evaporated mild which I diluted- 1 cup evaporated milk - 1 cup water)
2 chicken bouillon cubes ( didn't use)
2 medium zucchini, grated
1 medium carrot, grated
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Saute the onion with butter in a large saucepan for 5-7 minutes, until the onion is tender.

Stir in the flour until combined, cook for 1 minute.

 Stir in the water ( I added chicken broth), milk, bouillon ( didn't use), salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and  add the zucchini and carrot and cook for 5 minutes until veggies are tender.

Season with Salt and Pepper to taste.

 Stir often, so the soup doesn't burn to the bottom of the pot.

  1. YUMMMM! My garden is getting its second wind in this late summer heat and still giving me zucchini. I'd love this soup just the way it is....Bob on the other hand would be looking for more "bulk" so I'd have to add some cooked rice or tiny pasta (Linda, stop gagging, I can see you! :) ) or cooked shredded chicken to his. It would be a good way to use leftover cooked chicken or rice too.

    Thanks Linda! My plan is to give this a go as soon as I get the leftover party food out of my refrigerator...that could take awhile. Wanna come over for leftovers? I WISH!

  2. Now this is different. It will be nice on those cold winter days. I always freeze my shredded zucchini . I haven't been out to the Vegie Stand this year. Too much going on to get there. Thanks Linda for the new Idea on some Soup and using the Zucchini..
