Vegan Zucchini Soup

Recipe by Lisa Malin

A creamy, dairy-free soup that is both high on taste and nutrition? Yes, Please! This simple, healthy recipe hits the spot every time and can be enjoyed hot or cold.

Spotlight ingredient: Zucchini: Zucchini s packed with body-loving minerals, such as iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. This tender green veggie is also filled with healthy vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin A, C, K, folic acid, and antioxidants. We love it grilled, roasted, sauteed, and even raw drizzled with olive oil, a splash of fresh lemon, and sea salt.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 small-medium size onion, finely chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, sliced

  • Sea salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 pounds zucchini, sliced.

  • 2 ½ cups low sodium vegetable stock 

  • Chopped herbs of choice (parsley, dill, basil, mint, cilantro) for serving

  • Pumpkin seeds to garnish
