Crockpot Zucchini soup

 I made a soup!!

Or I cooked - either way - you should be jumping for joy!!

I love when the days get cooler, as I love to have my Crockpot going and something yummy waiting for us at the end of the day.... 

So here is 

Zucchini Soup!

2Tbsp Butter

1 Small onion diced

5 cups of Diced Zucchini ( I peeled mine, cuz I don't like the peels)

2 potatoes - Peeled and Diced

4 cups of Chicken broth

1/2 cup of Cream or Half and Half

1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

1. Melt the butter in a pan and saute the onions until soft. I kinda let mine get carmelized.

2. add the zucchini into the pan and stir fry for about 5 minutes

3. Put this in the crockpot

4. Peel and dice the potatoes

5. Add them to the crockpot

6. cover with chicken broth and cook until soft - Mine took 5 hours ( well maybe less, but I left the house for 5 hours and came back and they were soft)

7. Use an Immersion blender to cream it all up

8. and the cream and cheese - stir until melted

9. serve and tell your family you made a cream soup and they will NEVER know it has zucchini in it!!

The soup sounds delicious! I find it interesting that so often when someone makes something with zucchini in it, they try to make it so other people can't tell there is zucchini as an ingredient. For myself, I find zucchini rather flavorless. It's takes on the flavor of the other ingredients. Autumn/winter is a great time for crockpot soups. I recently purchased a bread maker, put all the ingredients in the container and I have fresh home made bread to eat with soup! Hope you find some time for stitching this week!

I absolutely LOVE zucchini! I always forget that own an immersion blender. Thanks for the recipe, Alycia, as my family likes soup and sandwich night!

Sounds yummy. Hubby likes potato soup, so bet he'd like this. I use my crock pot all the time. Saves more time for sewing.
