Ingredients

  • 3 thick Mexican zucchini or regular Italian zucchini rinsed and sliced into ¼ inch
  • 1 bunch green onions rinsed and roughly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken broth could use vegetable broth to make it vegetarian
  • 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste

optional

  • greek yogurt, heavy cream, or sour cream to top it with

Instructions

  • In a large sauce pan, sauté the green onions in the olive oil for 3-4 minutes on medium heat
  • Add in the Mexican squash, the chicken broth, the water, and the salt and pepper to taste. Bring it to a soft simmer. Cook until the zucchini is very soft, this will take about 20-30 minutes.
  • When the soup is ready, get your hand blender and pulsate until the soup is silky smooth! Taste the soup, add in any extra salt or pepper and enjoy with a dollop of sour cream, drizzle of heavy cream, or a little greek yogurt for the more health conscious of us!

Notes

If you decide to use a blender instead of a hand blender, make sure that your soup is slightly cooler. If you try blending it while it's still hot, the lid would pop off and you will end up with a soupy mess. Worst of all, you might even burn yourself!
