Got a bounty of zucchini? Zucchini Spinach Bisque is earthy, velvety, and topped with tomato herb cream, making it easy to eat healthy. Not only is this soup simple to prepare, it’s a great way to whittle down your crop. There’s no doubt you will be inundate your family with zucchini bread, cake, muffins and the like just to use it all up. I too am a fan of moist zucchini quick breads so there’s no doubt that I will participate this fall in the onslaught of zucchini treats.

Today however, I feel the zucchini needs to come out of the shadows of flour, sugar and chocolate chips. Here the zucchini is front and center, thick and luscious. No cream, no flour, just a sprinkling of rice to lend body. The tomato herb cream brightens and cuts through all the earthiness to create the perfect spoonful.

Zucchini and spinach are low in calories but high in fibre, vitamin C and vitamin A, making this soup healthy and nutritious. I love this recipe because it’s simple, nutritious and a warming way to use zucchini. Enjoy!
