Delectable Zucchini Soup combines onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, garlic, zucchini, and fresh thyme in perfectly seasoned vegetable broth. This easy soup is ready in about thirty minutes making it easily doable on those busy weeknights when time is precious. It is chock full of nutrition making it a wise family friendly choice. Sometimes we simply enjoy this soup by itself for a light late summer meal. For a heartier meal I love to serve this tasty soup with Beer Bread with Cheddar and Arnold Palmer Drinks.
