  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into ¾-inch pieces (2 cups)
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

This one of my favorite soups. I add cooked quinoa at the end as suggested by another comment below. It's perfect and a whole meal!

Everybody in my family raved about this soup. I used basil instead of mint because that's what I happened to have on hand. Used a can of butter beans & a can of cannellini (rinsed) DELICIOUS, will definitely be making this again & again.

To be honest I didn't hold much hope for this recipe and the combo of ingredients, but it was actually a delicious and well balanced soup. A perfect summer soup!
