Why settle for canned soup when you make your own heartier fresh-tasting soup without all those additives? This carrot and zucchini soup is pureed to make a deliciously filling soup to warm you on cool Autumn days. Enjoy with a slice of crusty whole-grain bread.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1lb carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1lb zucchini, unpeeled and sliced
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 3 1/2 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley

How to Make It

Sauté onions in a soup pot for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add carrots and zucchini, followed by curry powder. Stir for 1-2 minutes. Add chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Add chopped parsley.

Transfer soup to a blender and blend until smooth, working in two batches.
