Thick and Easy Zucchini Soup
This is my spin on a quick, easy, healthy version of zucchini soup a friend of ours served at a party. This is a nice, thick soup -- much like a split pea in consistency. Mediterranean flavor ~ some might say with a kick depending on your spice levels...we like spice so we find this flavorful, but mild. :)
zucchini, sliced (small-medium size)
onion, chopped (or 2 medium)
ground black pepper
Lightly saute zucchini, onions and garlic in a pan over medium heat.
When half way done, add all spices and 1/2 of broth (8oz) and finish cooking until tender, but firm reserving the remaining half of broth to the side.
Blend in blender (or with stick /immersion blender), adding additional stock as needed, stopping when you have a thick, split pea consistency. Enjoy!!
