This Zucchini Noodle Soup is quick and easy to make, full of flavor, low in carbs, gluten free and very delicious.
I am a huge fan of soups of any kind. I mean I have a strong LOVE for soups and I am not even kidding. For the last month, every time my husband asks me what you want to have for dinner I say “soup”. And every time he answers “really, again?? Why do you love soup? This is not a main dish!!!” And I always say “for me, it is”. I don’t know if I can say soup is my favorite dish ever, but I am someone that has a hard time to choose only one thing to say is my favorite, but soup is definitely on the top of my list for sure. So far, I’ve made Sweet Potato Chicken Soup Recipe, Spinach Sweet Potato Soup, and a couple of soups from this 30 Healthy Soup Recipes post!
I know it is summer time and normally people don’t like to have soup this time of the year, but I just couldn’t resist making this soup last weekend. I can’t stay without having soup for so long. Three months of summer is too much time without having soup. So, when I see some zucchinis at my local market I thought they could go so well in a summer soup.
I bought them and of course I spiralized because I am addicted to making veggies noodles this summer. Who doesn’t like to that?? It is so fun!! And the noodles are lighter, healthier, full of fiber and more flavorful than any traditional noodles out there. This time I didn’t used my favorite tool to make noodles, which is Spiralizer from Paderno, because for this soup I would like to make julienne noodles, instead of curly noodle (but feel free to use it if you prefer. No problem at all). For this reason, I used my julienne peeler. I made my zucchini noodles in seconds and they were perfect.
This soup is very easy to make. The only time consuming part is to chop some ingredients like red peppers, onions and potatoes. The broth you will use should be a very good one, because it is going to be the base for this soup. Also, just add your julienne zucchini noodles when the potatoes are done cooking otherwise your zucchini will be mushy or disintegrate. Zucchini cooks very quickly like in minutes. So, it should be the last ingredient added. I hope you enjoy this soup and let’s get started!! Loved this soup and want to try something similar? Try this Zucchini noodles with Tomato Sauce and Shrimp (which goes reallllllly well with this Italian Sausage Tomato Sauce Recipe).
