Zucchini Parmesan Soup

When it comes to soups, in my opinion, the creamier the better. This soup is one that I make over and over again sometimes using broccoli or cauliflower instead of zucchini. This makes a great appetizer to any dairy meal, serve with a great sandwich or pasta, or as a main course with great crusty French bread.

4 cups zucchini, diced

1 cup onions, diced

1 Tbsp. garlic, minced

2 Tbsp. butter

2 cups vegetable broth

¼ tsp. ground nutmeg

½ cup carrots, diced

½ cup heavy cream

¼ cup grated parmesan

2 Tbsp. dried parsley

Salt and pepper

In a large saucepan cook zucchini, onions, and garlic in butter. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in broth and nutmeg and ring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until zucchini is very soft.

Remove 2 cups of zucchini and set aside. Puree soup with a blender or food processor then return the aside zucchini and carrots, cream and parmesan. Simmer soup until carrots are tender and cheese is melted, stirring often.

Finish soup with parsley, salt and pepper.
