To grow zucchini or not. That is the question.
I upped my herb game again this year. The usual suspects made it to my pots and planter boxes – sage, dill, tarragon, oregano. The perennials made it back – mint and thyme. I ordered some more exotic-to-me seeds like Chinese bunching onions, arugula, Chinese celery, lovage and Thai basil. Some made it, some sprouted and died.
I am tinkering with the idea of growing zucchini. It’s been a few years. What I remember about my previous gardening adventures is that I wasn’t prepared for the onslaught of beautiful veggies and I ended up giving a lot away and making the few zucchini dishes that I was familiar with, namely zucchini fritters and skillet-fried zucchini rounds.
This year is different. I am learning how to make amazing dishes with zucchini first and then deciding if I want to grow zucchini. I’m three recipes in on my quest and I have already decided to grow it. I just needed inspiration and some time to play with my food in the kitchen.
First up is this chilled, creamy zucchini soup. It has few ingredients, easy to make and it made the cut on taste factor. It is healthy thanks to Greek yogurt instead of cream, and lightly flavored with chicken broth, miso, mint and lemon juice. You can make this vegan by swapping out the chicken broth for veggie broth but don’t skimp on the miso if you do this. It gently kisses this recipe with umami.
How To Make This Recipe
I used the microwave to cook the zucchini. It cooks great in the microwave due to the high water content. Simply cut zucchini cross-wise and microwave on high for 4-8 minutes or until soft.
I used a small food processor so I had to blend this in batches but I’m used to this. If you have a large food processor you can probably do this all at once. You can definitely use a blender too so don’t fret if you don’t have a food processor.
