Fresh Tomato Zucchini Soup

Fresh Tomato Zucchini Soup


"At a point of abundance with tomatoes and zucchini from my garden I came up with this soup. A friend said it was like a soup you would get at one of those chic 5 star restaurants! Serve with crusty French bread and salad. This soup tastes wonderful after a little cooking or simmering a long time. Sometimes I add cooked rice to give a bit more substance."

This is a great recipe! I just added a little more zucchini and an extra red pepper for more kick and it was perfect! We will definitely make this one again.

I followed the advice of earlier reviewers and added the zucchini in the last 10 minutes of cooking. I also skipped the listed spices and pureed one fresh seeded jalapeƱo with the tomatoes and...

The base of the soup is a good idea. Definitely add zucchini in the end. I added pink beans along with a can of garbanzo beans for more substance. Also added a lot more garlic. I think this reci...

I thought this was okay--not bad, but not anything special, either. I used fresh herbs, and I wasn't crazy about the dill. Plus, all the flavor simmered out of the zucchini--I think it might be ...
