Zucchini and Yellow Squash Soup | - vegetarian, vegan, healthy

One of my favorite parts about making vegetable soup is how very versatile it is. Virtually anything you have on hand can be tossed in!

Fresh produce, beans, grains…even pasta of all kinds can be added! Leftover chicken? No it goes!

When the weather is chilly or I simply feel like a big comforting bowl of soup, I toss together this squash soup recipe. It’s just so satisfying!

For this edition of veggie bliss, I made a squash-centric soup using zucchini and yellow squash and added bell pepper, onion, cannellini beans, dried herbs, and diced tomatoes. The end result is a flavorful, filling meal that leaves you feeling energized and satisfied.

Serve it up with a rustic bread, like my Cheese and Herb Irish Soda Bread or Sweet Potato Rolls with Maple Bacon Glaze for an amazing dinner or lunch!

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Incorporate your favorite vegetables – cauliflower, broccoli, carrot and celery are great!
  • Replace cannellini beans with black beans, kidney beans, or garbanzo beans.
  • Add protein – bacon, chicken, and shrimp are marvelous!
  • Omit the diced tomatoes if you don’t have any on hand.

This was excellent. Used zucchini and yellow squash from the garden. Even my carnivore husband loved it, as well as my 8 y/o granddaughter, who had seconds. Wick and easy, too! This is a keeper!

Made this tonight after searching for a zucchini and squash soup. I needed to do something with zucchini, squash, and tomatoes before they completely turned. I used butter and did not have any canned beans or bell pepper. The soup turned out great non the less.....well I imagine. I called my mom and told her how awesome I am and she should make it.

So, SO yummy! Made a modified version of this and hubby called it "restaurant quality"! We roasted most of the veggies first and then started some macaroni noodles, celery, beans, veggie broth, and smaller bits of carrots on the stove. When the roasted veggies came out we popped them into the pot, stirred and served with a loaf of french bread. It was RE DONK YOU LUS LY GOOD!!! Will definitely make this again (if we can!).
