Fresh zucchini from the garden and summer corn make this a refreshing soup to take you from the end of summer into the beginning of fall. This creamy zucchini corn soup is perfect for a light dinner or lunch either chilled or hot. I’m sharing the recipe below.
Creamy Zucchini Corn Soup
If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember the ginormous zucchini we picked from the garden last week. (I think we made Martha proud!) Anyways, what was I going to make with this bad boy?
With the temps trending a little cooler and fall approaching, I’ve had soup on my mind so I decided to make a zucchini soup. We had some leftover grilled corn on the cob from the night before so I threw that in too for some added sweetness and a little crunch! You can serve either hot or cold. I prefer it served chilled and topped with goat cheese.
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 2tbsp garlic
- 6 cups of chopped zucchini
- 3 cups of broth (I used chicken broth because that’s what I had in my fridge)
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 4 ears of corn (grilled and sliced off the cob)
- Optional – goat cheese
1.) In a large saucepan, heat some olive oil. When the pan and olive oil is hot, brown the garlic and heat onions until translucent.
2.) Add chopped zucchini and cook until tender.
3.) Pour in broth. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir well and let simmer for 15 minutes.
4.) Using an immersion blender, (this is the one I have) puree well.
5.) Stir in heavy cream.
6.) Top with corn.
Optional – sprinkle in some goat cheese or Parmesan. Enjoy warm or chilled.
