Zucchini Onion Tomato Soup

Zucchini Onion Tomato Soup is the lightest, quickest and easiest soup you’ll ever make. Just sauté the veggies, add salt and pepper, broth, and cook until tender. Then blend until smooth and serve piping hot. With just three vegetables that delicately flavor the soup this really is a simple and delicious soup. Zucchini, onion and tomato. That’s it. These three vegetables create a soup that is truly comforting.

Dinner at Padmini and Naresh’s.

It was an unexpected cool evening when we went over for a springtime April dinner at our friends Padmini and Naresh’s place last Saturday where our mutual friend Prasad and his daughter Anya joined us as well. Padmini explained as we walked in from a chilly outside how she specifically made a light soup to warm us all up.  At Padmini’s is where I had this wonderful zucchini soup which she served as an appetizer no less!  With a cheese platter and red wine, this zucchini soup was a welcome warming starter. Because the soup was so light and delicately flavored it complimented the cheese board really well; and accompanied with a good glass of Pinot – the mood was set for a lovely evening ahead.

Gorgeous views from Padmini and Naresh’s family room created a beautiful backdrop for lively conversation.
