Creamy Zucchini Soup



Here's a yummy soup to try:

1 medium onion, diced
2 pounds of chopped zucchini
2 cups of water or chicken stock
salt, pepper, ground cumin to taste
1/4 cup or so cream cheese

Add all the ingredients except the cream cheese and bring to a boil. Simmer covered for about 15 minutes or so, then puree. Add the cream cheese and allow it to melt throughout the soup.

I think broccoli will work pretty well. It probably would result in a soup a little more vibrant green, but that's a plus for me.

I have a "cream" of zucchini soup that contains NO milk products, but folks who have tasted it swear it does. Part of the secret is that an immersion blender is used to "cream" the soup.

I have some friends who swear by a soup made with broccoli in the same manner. The real trick is using cream cheese, plus the immersion blender as has been said previously.

However, I think you would need to cook it longer, as zucchini goes soft much more quickly than does broccoli.
