Cream of Zucchini Soup (HG Strict, GF, SF, LC)

Cream of Zucchini SoupThis recipe is surprisingly EASY! And HG Strict, of which I am always looking for new ones 🙂 This recipe inspired by www.sfgate.com Of course, I had to make some changes to make it just the way I like it 🙂 Enjoy!

     Fry in med size pot for couple minutes:

2 Tbsp butter

1 small bunch green onions, diced

3 cloves garlic, chopped, crushed, whatever you like 🙂

1 tsp lemon zest (or just use more lemon juice)

     Add to pot, bring to boil and simmer for 30-40 mins

2 pounds zucchini (approx) chopped into cubes

3 cups chicken stock (Homemade prefered, Click for recipe)

1 Tbsp Basil

2 tsp sea salt

Pinch fresh ground pepper

     Stir in:

1-2 tsp lemon juice

3 Tbsp sour cream

     Pour all into blender, till smooth. Easy peasy, right? 😀

     Reheat and/or eat as is!

This mildly resembled pea soup, until I added the lemon juice and sour cream, and then BAM! Totally different soup, and so yummy!!!

Tip: Could try some cubes of mozza cheese and/or some fresh blended tomatoes in there! YUM!

Tip for Lemon Zest: Who has the energy and time to actually ZEST a lemon right?! LOL 😀 What I did was squeeze as much of the juice out as I could, set aside, and put the lemon peel and all into a food processor and zip away! When all chopped small, Using a tsp, scoop in tsp amounts on a plate and freeze. When you remember it, pop them off the plate into a zip lock and store in freezer till you need it! Awesome hey?! 😀
