Zucchini and Onion Soup

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 282


2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 1/4 pounds (about 6 small) zucchini, sliced
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
1 cup water
4 green onions, , including 2 inches of the green, chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth, canned or homemade
1/2 cup cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the zucchini, salt, pepper, and water. Cover, and cook over medium heat until the zucchini are very soft, 12 to 15 minutes. Add the green onions, broth, and cream. Cook, uncovered, 5 minutes.

2. Transfer soup to a blender or food processor and purée until smooth. Return to the pan--if serving hot--and reheat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until steaming hot, 3 to 4 minutes. If serving cold, chill in the refrigerator at least 2 hours before serving. Garnish with cilantro.
