  • Summary

    This Vegan Creamy Zucchini Soup is only 7 ingredients and is oil-free! It is loaded with flavor and is super creamy and smooth, thanks to pureed zucchini, bell peppers and a kick from jalapeno.

    Ingredients

    • 6 1/2 heaping cups (845g) peeled and diced zucchini, 1/2 inch pieces (I used 6 medium to large zucchini, but please weigh for accuracy if possible.)
    • 3/4 cup (120g) chopped red bell pepper
    • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 1/2 cups (300g) low-sodium vegetable broth, divided (I really love the Pacific brand, the flavor is amazing. Use a good quality flavored broth.)
    • 6 "hot" pickled jalapeño slices from a jar (use 4 or 5 if you don't want it overly spicy)
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt and grind of fresh ground black pepper
    • 2 teaspoons (10g) fresh lemon juice
    • Optional toppings: pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, croutons or freshly chopped jalapeno
    • I use this scale.
    • The jalapeno slices are very key to the overall flavor to the soup because of the deep brine acidic flavor they have, so they cannot be omitted. I used a jar labeled "hot", so mine had a lovely spicy kick. However, if you want it more mild, especially for kids, look for a jar labeled medium or mild and start out with maybe just 4 slices, as you can always add more after blending and tasting it.
