Recipe Ingredients for Herbed Zucchini Soup

3 c reduced-sodium fat free chicken broth (105273)
1 1/2 pounds zucchini (about 3 medium), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon or dill or 1 Tsp. dried
3 ounces (3/4 C) shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese (83239)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Herbed Zucchini Soup

  1. Place broth, zucchini and tarragon (or dill) in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until the zucchini is tender, 7 to 10 minutes.

  2. Puree in a blender (see Tip), in batches if necessary, until smooth. Return the soup to the pan and heat over medium-high, slowly stirring in cheese until it is incorporated. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot or chilled.

  3. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Serve chilled or reheat.

  4. Tip: Hot liquids can splatter out of a blender when it's turned on. To avoid this, remove the center piece of the lid. Loosely cover the hole with a folded kitchen towel and turn the blender on. Better airflow will keep the contents from spewing all over the kitchen.
