Zucchini Tomato Soup


This may not look like the most appetizing of soups. Especially, given the lovely colour of most soups I've made this winter. But since I tried it out and since it was a nice nourishing soup which we really liked, I had to share it with all of you. This is a nice way to use up zucchini after making all those lasagne and stir fries.


2 Zucchinis, diced

4 Tomatoes, chopped

2 Onions, chopped

1 tsp Garlic, chopped

1 tsp Oil

1 tbsp Mixed Herbs (Parsley, Basil, Oregano)

1/4 tsp Nutmeg Powder

Salt and Pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a pressure pan. Add the onions and garlic and fry for a minute. Add the tomatoes and zucchini and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the herbs and the nutmeg powder. Add 2-3 cups of water and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.


Blend in a liquidizer and pour the contents into a pan. Bring the soup to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Close your eyes and enjoy the soup while it is still hot.

Thanks for visiting my space,Raaga. I love zucchini and usually bake it with some cheese.I guess it's the time time to try your soup.

The only thing I usually do with Zuchhini is to put into a roasted salad - this soup looks really good. Thanks!

I love zucchini.....but this is so not the season for soups here in Chennai....it's so hot that I don't think I'll ever want to go into the kitchen :-))

Love the recipe Raaga, am bookmarking it. I imagine adding milk would add to the creaminess of the soup.
