Low Carb Zucchini Soup
This is another one of Broadys delicious creations — low carb, fast and easy to make, and absolutely delicious. Enjoy!
3 large zucchini, sliced into 1/4″ rounds
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 onion, chopped (or onion flakes for fewer carbs)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cups vegetable stock
2 Tablespoons butter or cream
Coat your pan with the olive oil, and fry onion (or onion flakes) and garlic until brown. Add zucchini and fry for approximately three minutes longer, stirring.
Add the stock and simmer until zucchini is cooked through and soft. Put into a blender, add the butter or cream (may be left out if you’re watching your fat intake!), and puree to desired smoothness. If you like a little texture in your soup, only puree 3/4 of the mixture, then combine and stir well. Serve and enjoy!
Makes 3 servings.
