Curried Zucchini Soup

Who doesn't love a feel-good recipe that takes only 20 minutes to prepare? I'm in love with this soup, and the ease of preparation is only the beginning. It utilizes one of my favorite vegetables and a spice I'm just wild about. And since we're heading into soup season, it's time to start pulling out those stock pots for warm and delicious meals. Since this recipe has only 7 ingredients, most of which are already stocked in your pantry, you have no excuse to not try this amazing soup.

Curried Zucchini Soup

Curried Zucchini Soup
2 tbsp olive oil
4 c sliced zucchini
1 c onion, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp curry powder
1 c vegetable broth
1/2 c soymilk

Wash and slice zucchini into 1/4" slices. Heat olive oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, onion, and garlic to pan. Saute 5 minutes, until zucchini starts to become translucent. Add curry powder, stir well, and cover pot. Lower heat to low, and cook an additional 10 minutes, or until zucchini is tender. Place zucchini mixture into blender with 1/2 c vegetable broth. Blend until pureed. With motor running, add remaining broth and soymilk. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or chill and serve cold.
