This Light & Refreshing Chilled Curried Zucchini Soup is bursting with beautiful flavors.
Some of that was due to the overnight chilling. This soup started as a hot soup the night before. It wasn’t until the next morning when I went to the fridge to see what leftovers I could turn into breakfast that I discovered the full beauty of this soup.
And so it became Chilled Curried Zucchini Soup.
When the summer bounty yields baskets of zucchini I’m starving for new recipes. This chilled summer soup is so light and refreshing. The aromatics and fresh herbs pop with flavor making the zucchini shine. The curry powder adds a level of complexity without overpowering the dish. And when chilled all the flavors mellow slightly making this soup so smooth and delicious!
On a side note: this soup image was one of the very first to be published on the pages of Lemony Thyme. In fact, I used this image as a Logo for the first couple years. It’s still one of my favorites. I truly believe we eat with our eyes first and this picture makes me want to dive in with two spoons!
