Curried Zucchini soup made with fresh ginger, jalapeño and mint. Quick, easy and deeply satisfying, this vegan-adaptable soup can be served hot or chilled.
Velvety zucchini soup gets a lovely hit from the synergy of ginger, jalapeno and mint, delighting your palate with a touch of tangy heat and a smooth creamy texture.
Even though the ingredients are simple, there is something rich and deeply comforting about this soup.
The fresh mint and cilantro elevate the flavor giving the soup a fresh vibrant taste.
The zucchini soup is blended so no need to spend extra time on precise cutting. Just roughly chop, quickly sauté and blend into a silky soup. Ready in no time!
Sautéing in coconut oil lends flavor and a slight sweetness that compliments the curry spice but you can easily substitute a neutral-flavored oil.
Veggie broth can replace chicken broth for a vegan alternative. Simmer until tender, and blend until smooth.
Tip: Very Large zucchini can sometimes taste bitter. We find medium-size zucchini to have optimal texture and flavor.
Garnish the soup with more herbs, yogurt or coconut milk and fresh chilies or chili flakes for extra heat. Here we are using Urfa Biber.
Hope you enjoy this simple, Curried Zucchini Soup. Such a beautiful way to use up the extra zucchini from the garden this season!
