I love creamy soups but I don’t like always using heavy cream. I get basically the exact flavors using flour, broth, and milk instead.
All you have to do to make this soup is sauté the onions and garlic in a little coconut oil. Add the flour, broth, and milk. Then add the grated veggies and seasonings. Then simmer for about 30 minutes.
Pair this zucchini soup with a favorite piece of fruit and slice of bread for a great healthy lunch or dinner.
How to Make this Cream of Zucchini Soup
In a large saucepan, saute the onion and garlic in the coconut oil on medium-high for 5-7 minutes or until the onion is tender.
Stir in the flour and mix until combined well.
Stir in the broth and milk and bring to a boil
Reduce the heat and add the zucchini, carrot, and thyme.
Cook for 30 minutes, or until veggies are tender, stirring occasionally.
Pro Tip: If you want to make it even more hearty, add a can of white northern beans or lentils.
Use other spices instead of thyme if you’d like. Basil or curry flavors are amazing too.
