By using a combination of cornstarch and low-fat milk, instead of heavy cream, we've reduced the fat and calories from traditional zucchini soup while keeping its rich 'n' creamy texture.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 pound zucchini, chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dillweed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

What to Do

  1. Coat a soup pot with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
     
  2. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic, and sauté 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently.
     
  3. Add zucchini, chicken broth, dill, salt, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 25 to 30 minutes, or until zucchini is tender.
     
  4. In a small bowl, whisk  milk and cornstarch until smooth; add to soup mixture and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring until thickened.

Had some at a friends house,and it was great. Just hope I don't mess it up. With your recipe I don't see how I can. Thanks Don
