Creamy Zucchini and Carrot Soup Recipe

Oh, what a wonderful sprinter we're having in Minnesota this year!! 

It's spring, yet winter doesn't want to leave. We are expecting to get 2-5 inches of snow tomorrow and it's been chilly outside. 

Every time we walk outside in the morning and it's cold, my daughter says "Mother Nature, why do you keep doing this to us?" Yes, Mother Nature, why??

Along with the never ending winter, is the never ending cold and flu season! 

I've had strep twice and now a nasty cold that made me lose my voice. I sound pretty hilarious with a squeaky, tiny voice. I'm almost tempted to record myself. Almost.

You all know what we need to eat while we're sick.... soup!! 

I just made this fast and easy Creamy Zucchini and Carrot Soup tonight and it was so good! 

I love how simple it is to make and you could substitute other grated veggies like potatoes if you don't like zucchini or carrots. 

Dinner is on the table in less than 30 minutes and is complete with a chunk of crusty bread for dipping! Enjoy!

Creamy Zucchini and Carrot Soup

by Sheena
  • 1 medium sized onion, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup chicken or veggie broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • salt and pepper, to taste
In a large saucepan, saute the onion in the butter for 5-7 minutes, until the onion is tender.

Stir in the flour until combined, cook for 1 minute. Stir in the broth, milk, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. 

Reduce heat, add the zucchini and carrot and cook for 5 minutes until veggies are tender. 

Make sure to stir often, so the soup doesn't scorch.

  6. Yum Sheena, I love creamy soups, and I must try this one soon.

  7. I love most any soup and this looks so delicious! Can't wait to try!

  8. Thank you so much, Sheena - I think I just solved two problems!! :) One, I know what I'm doing with some of my zucchini and two - it's gonna be our dinner tonight!! Woot woot!!

    1. We loved this, Sheena - so simple and I had all of the ingredients :)

  9. This is a great soup!
    I'd love to try this recipe :)

  10. Now is I put vegetables in soup my son will eat them... this dish is perfect. Thanks for bringing it to foodie friday.

  11. Happy Friday Sheena - I'm here to tell you this yummy recipe is being featured at this week's Weekend Potluck's party. Congrats! Thanks so much for your faithfulness to share with us. Please come back again soon. And enjoy a lovely weekend. Stay warm!

  12. I have an abundance of zucchini, this looks and sounds fantastic, I will be making this soon. Thanks for sharing!

  13. How far do you go to the center of the zucchini? Do you use just the outside and some of the white part?

    1. My zucchini were small, so I grated the entire thing! If yours are larger, you could use less of the white part if you prefer.

  14. How far do you go to the center of the zucchini? Do you use just the outside and some of the white part?

  15. In the recipe you mention a bullion, but you didn't put it in the list of ingredients, so do you add one bullion cube?

    1. I just edited the post. You can use just broth, no bullion cube. Thanks!

  16. Just made this. It was very good! I used homemade bone broth and increased it to two cups, added some elbow noodles with the veggies, and threw in a handful of cheddar cheese at the end. Served with homemade crusty bread, it was a healthy and comforting meal!

  17. So yummy. I have made this twice this week. I added a little cayenne, celery seeds and extra carrots and used my immersion blender a bit. My husband hates diet food but loves this soup. I think I will add some left over chicken the next time. Thank you so much for the recipe. Love it.

    1. I'm SO glad you love it, Joan! Thanks so much for letting me know! :)

  18. I made this tonight but tweaked it a bit to use what I had on hand. Ended up blending it up as the soup boiled before I could catch it and the milk separated. It was a tasty, creamy soup that everyone enjoyed. It's definitely going on the menu rotation!

  19. Is this soup freezer friendly?

  20. I also added peas and corn, and a 1/8 cup heavy cream. Serving it at a Christmas party. Thank you so much!

  21. Made your recipe the other day and it's great! I used Better Than Bouillion chicken base, 3 carrots & 2 zucchini food processed to tiny pieces. Also made homemade bread bowls to serve in, and all I can say is YUM!!!
