Take-out Tuesday, Garden Soup

I can’t wait until I can make this soup with vegetables from our garden! This is such an easy soup to make and is a wonderful summer meal~


Things are starting to grow!


This is our first attempt at a raised garden and we got a late start, but it won’t be long now!  I hope!


Roasted sweet red peppers, vegetable stock, sliced zucchini, garlic, cream and olive oil


Drain and slice the peppers


Saute garlic in olive oil for 2 minutes and then add zucchini and peppers


Cook and stir


about 10 minutes


Add broth, cream and seasonings and bring to a boil.


Simmer for 15 minutes


Grab your handy dandy stick blender…what? You don’t have one?  You NEED this.  Really.


Puree until smooth.   I love this part, it’s so much fun.  You feel like you’re Master of the Universe.  Seriously.


Garnish with lots of fresh Parm and basil

    What a great recipe so fresh and creamy. I had a stick blender for a few years and only used it for chopping. Then I finally used it on my puree’s and soups, I could have kicked myself for not doing it earlier, some times I wonder about myself!
    Thank you for sharing your recipe on BBQ Block Party

    This looks so good Jenna! I love my immersion blender, it saves so much clean up and prevents disastrous blender explosions with hot soup!

  11. Maria says:

    Ha! I recently acquired a stick blender and now I’m telling everyone I know that they need one! And they really do! I could just kick myself for not haven gotten it sooner. Your soup looks delicious! I’m adding this one to my “must make” list.
