Zucchini Ginger Soup

Fresh tasting ginger, lemon and tender zucchini makes this a light soup perfect for a low-key Sunday soup dinner. Honestly sometimes I think maybe the family wants more than soup on Sunday night so I try very hard to make my soups as hearty and filling as I can; but in reality the family is perfectly fine having a soup that is light and not so filling, especially after a weekend of indulging. I made this soup with over 5 zucchinis to add in as much vegetables as I could for a large pot of soup, yet this was all gone. With no leftovers for my next day’s lunch. This zucchini soup is one that everyone in the family loved with feedback like “This is awesome soup.” and “It’s delicious Mommy.” and “It’s really good.”  How can I get better feedback than this?

Generous amount of ginger and garlic give the soup that flavor punch, while coconut milk and a couple of small potatoes add that creamy texture. Then add fresh-squeezed lemon juice and fresh cilantro and you get a zucchini soup that tastes positively delicious.
