bowl of soupI had an overabundance of white zucchini so I thought I'd try to make a soup with it. You can use regular zucchini in lieu of white zucchini for this. I used bacon as the flavourful base for it, then topped it off with crispy bacon as a stir-in garnish. It was so hearty and delicious!


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1/3 cup chopped bacon
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 3 cups peeled and chopped zucchini
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped potatoes
  • 4 chopped garlic cloves
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup chopped bacon for garnish


  1. Render 1/3 cup chopped bacon in a large pot over medium heat until browned.
  2. cooking Bacon
  3. Add onions, zucchini, potatoes, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
  4. cut Zucchini

  5. Add stock and water and turn heat up to high. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Yum! I need to remember this one for late summer, when the zucchini is growing faster than we can eat it up. In fact, I may make this one of the weekly soups in August. :)

Oh you're so lucky you have that problem :D I hope you try this-- the bacon really gives it a smoky yummy depth. I went with using a potato instead of a roux, but you could go that route, too.
