these words come to mind when the dark green basil leaves are blended with the light green zucchini slices.This soup is very low in calories as there is no stock,onlyy the juice of the zucchini and a bit of water.
Now this soup is decidedly "basilish",if it is too much for your taste feel free to reduce the basil to 1/4 cup.
Great soup for a light lunch or first course,served with a dollop of low fat yogurt or sour cream.
