"Zucchini is such a plentiful producer during the summer that I made several batches of this soup and freeze it for the two of us," writes Bernice Morris of Marshfield, Missouri. "It's wonderful when cooler weather sets in."

Ingredients

  • 1 pound zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 cans (one 12 ounces, one 5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the zucchini, water, onion, bouillon and seasoned salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Cool slightly.
  2. In a blender, cover and process soup in batches until pureed. Return all to the pan. Add milk and butter; cook and stir until better is melted. Serve immediately or transfer to a freezer container. May be frozen for up to 3 months.
To use frozen soup: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Transfer to a large saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until heated through.
