  • Cook: 30 minutes

  • This soup is light and delicious and makes a wonder meal!

  • Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream (using lowfat or FF sour cream lowers the calories and fat)

  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh basil leaves

  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano leaves

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 4 medium zucchini, thinly sliced (about 10 cups)

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 cups Vegetable Broth

  1. Directions:

  2. Stir the sour cream, 1 teaspoon of the basil and 1 teaspoon of the oregano in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate.

  3. Heat oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender. Add the zucchini and black pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the zucchini is tender.

  4. Add the broth, remaining basil and oregano. Heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.

  5. Place 1/3 of the zucchini mixture into an electric blender or food processor container. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a large bowl. Repeat the blending process twice more with the remaining zucchini mixture. Return all of the pureed mixture to the saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until hot.

  6. Divide the soup among 6 serving bowls. Add about 1 tablespoon of the sour cream mixture into each, using a spoon to swirl the cream in a decorative pattern on the soup surface.
