Soup Week: Curried Zucchini Soup

By BonAppetitHon, member

This is a quick and easy alternative to gazpacho that is equally good served hot or cold.  It also gives you another tasty weapon in your arsenal to combat the summer's zucchini onslaught. 

If you use a stick blender, your soup won’t be silky smooth.  For velvety smoothness, process the soup in a blender or food processor.  Either way is fine to enjoy zucchini with hints of ginger and super charged with sweet curry and garam masala heat.

BonAppetitHon writes: This soup is seasonless. In the winter it can be served warm but my personal favorite it to have it cold in the summer. Thanks for the kind words. Posted: 12:57 pm on February 28th
