I can’t be the only one who gets super lazy with fall season, and with that being said, I need something quick to make for dinner that can last me days. Soups are the best choice in this case since all you need to do is chop some veggies, throw them in a pot, add your favorite spices, add water and let the stove do the rest of the work for you!

Another reason why I love soups is you can customize your own recipes and make them healthier! This zucchini potato soup proves that you don’t need creamer or a variety of ingredients to make a delicious, healthy, and creamy soup! All you need is a handful of zucchinis, potatoes, onions, and a few teaspoons of spices for taste!

What you need to make this zucchini potato soup

All it takes to make this recipe is a zucchini, potato, onion, and a few teaspoons of spices. You can customize the amount if you are making this for more than two people. This recipe has two servings.

Ingredients

  • Zucchini
  • Potatoes
  • Onion
  • Olive oil
  • Parsley
  • Cilantro
  • Thyme
  • Nutmeg powder
  • Ginger powder
  • Paprika
  • Chilli powder
  • Chicken seasoning of choice (low sodium)

How to make zucchini potato soup

First, peel the onion and chop it as finely as you can. Set aside.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into quarters (wedges). Cut each quarter to five pieces and set aside.

Remove the seeds from the zucchinis by scoping the middle part using a tablespoon. Chop into medium-sized cubes and set aside.

Preheat a medium-sized pot, add olive oil, and minced onion. Sauté with constant steering over medium heat until tender and slightly caramelized.

Add chopped zucchini, potatoes, parsley, cilantro, thyme, nutmeg powder, salt, and other spices. Toss everything and cover the lid. Let it sauté for two minutes before adding water.

Add water, must cover the vegetable completely with water (by three inches at least). Bring to a simmer, cover-up, then lower the heat. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and tender. (test with a fork).

Turn off the stove and let it cool for a few minutes.

Using an immersion blender, blend the vegetable with the broth until smooth and creamy with no chunks left!

Serve hot. You can add a drizzle of olive oil, Parmesan cheese, or any desirable toppings!

Can I use chicken/vegetable stock instead of plain water?

Absolutely! I recommend using high quality, low sodium chicken/vegetable stock for the best taste. If you choose to use chicken stock, you don’t need to add chicken seasoning or salt in case your stock is high in sodium.

More Cooking Tips

For a creamy and thick consistency, the water must decrease by three inches at the least. If the water is still covering the veggies you can turn the heat to its highest and let it boil for a few minutes until it’s not covering the veggies anymore.

You do not need to peel the zucchini for this recipe. Just scope out the seeds using a tablespoon.
