Ever wonder what to do with those mega zucchini people give you or the random rogue one that was dainty one day and ginormous the next? Well, here is a recipe that works well for them and only uses one pot – nice!
3 Tbs olive oil
2 large onions diced
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 thumb sized of minced ginger
1-2 Tbs of curry powder (or a heaping teaspoon of coriander, cumin, turmeric and a few dashes of cayenne). I always add a few extra dashes of cayenne cause I’m a spicy kind of gal.
4-5 cups of H2o depending on the size of your zucchini (enough to cover your veg. matter)plus 3 cubes of veggie bullion * my favorite brand is Rapunzel
1 club sized zucchini (about 2 lbs) or a bunch of pretty little ones would work just fine too.
3 small potatoes cubed.
1 cup milk/a few dollops of plain yogurt is optional
1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions – saute for 5 minutes, add garlic and ginger and saute for another 5 minutes. Add spice and stir for a minute to release the aroma from the spice.
2. Add zucchini, potatoes and water w/ bullion. Simmer for 15 – 20 minutes
3. Puree the soup with a blender or stick blender (one of my favorite appliances). Add up to 1 cup of milk if desired but it is good vegan style too. A dollop of plain yogurt is also yummy but optional.
