I 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

  3. Add onions, zucchini, potatoes, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
  4. Add stock and water and turn heat up to high. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Turn off heat and allow soup to cool down a bit. Use a hand emersion blender (or transfer soup to blender) and puree until smooth.
  6. Stir in salt and pepper to taste and allow soup to sit over very low heat to warm back up.
