So Simple Zucchini Noodle Soup

zucchininoodlesoup
This soup is so simple it almost doesn’t even need any explanation :-) I just sauteed carrots and celery, and added steamed zucchini noodles, broth and Herbamare. It would also have been really good with some chicken for chicken “noodle” soup. To make the zucchini noodles I used this nifty julienne slicer that Elana got me into.
I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we did.

So Simple Zucchini Noodle Soup

grain-free, dairy-free
Add to pre-heated soup pot (I use Le Creuset *):
A few tablespoons of oil, about 3 cups chopped celery & about 3 cups chopped carrots.
Saute till barely fork tender.
Add 1.5 quarts of chicken or vegetable broth & 4 zucchini that have been sliced with julienne slicer and steamed.
Bring to almost a simmer.
Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp Herbamare (to your taste) & serve.
* If you frequent stores like Marshall’s you can find Le Creuset for half price or better. That’s how I got all three of my orange colored Le Crueset about three years ago. I’ve since seen others there in green, blue and yellow.

    What a great idea to make noodles out of veggies! Thanks for the tip, I will have to try it soon. Looks delicious!

    Soup looks and sounds perfect. I need one of those tools! Speaking of tools, what do you use to bake with? Muffin pans, cake pans etc…I looked on your blog but couldn’t find a link. Sorry if I missed it.

    Thanks guys!

    Maggie, I got my muffin pans years ago, wish I could remember where—it was online. They’re stainless steel. I bake in ceramic usually, but sometimes glass =)

    If you want your zucchini to look more like grain pasta (for visual effect) peel the zucchini before slicing julienne. This kind of “pasta” really works well with a sauce on top, too! :) (Try a hearty meat sauce.) Never thought of trying it in soup though! Thanks for the great idea!

    This looks SIMPLY delicious. I am going to try that zucchini noodle thing VERY soon : )
    I hope that your “bun” is baking well and that the family is doing fabulously!

    Thanks so much for this recipe!
    I was just thinking about getting a spiral slicer to make raw zucchini noodles, but we have been advised to eat fewer raw veggies and more slightly steamed for health reasons. I felt discouraged….and though it should have occurred to met that noodles are meant to be cooked, this was exactly the tip that I needed in order to have a new recipe for my family! Thanks!

    Mmmm this looks so good! Good old noodle soup, but far healthier! I’ve never tried soup with zucchini noodles but I’d love to give it a go.
    I’m actually coming down with a cold, so I may make this warming soup. Id also add potatoes, which I think could make a more satisfying comforting soup. Thanks for sharing this, perfect timing!

    This sounds like the perfect soup for the sniffles or post tummy ache. I was wondering why you steam the zucchini “noodles” and not just cook them in the broth. Thanks!

    I posted a carrot ginger soup with rice noodles that looks very similar to your soup. What a great idea to use zuchhini noodles. will have to try it. I love your blog and the wonderful ideas. Thanks for sharing.
