Silky Zucchini Soup

  • TOTAL TIME:
  • SERVINGS: 4

Chef Grant Achatz makes this simple, creamy, sublimely silky zucchini soup without any cream at all.

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  3. 1 small onion, finely chopped

  4. 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced

  5. Kosher salt

  6. Freshly ground pepper

  7. 1 1/2 pounds zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced 1/4 inch thick

  8. 2/3 cup vegetable stock or low-sodium broth

  9. Julienned raw zucchini, for garnish

  1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter in the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper and cook over moderately low heat, stirring frequently, until softened, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the stock and 1 1/2 cups of water and bring to a simmer; cook until the zucchini is very soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Working in 2 batches, puree the soup in a blender until it's silky-smooth. Return the soup to the saucepan and season with salt and pepper. Serve it either hot or chilled, garnished with julienned zucchini.

The soup can be refrigerated overnight.
