This zucchini soup is AMAZING! It has so much flavor and a little bit of texture, and what is most important it is very satisfying – like, it would keep you full for a long period of time (in my case 4-5 hours, which is great).
My mom used to make this soup for my brother and me when we were kids, and we loved it! At least I did haha, but I know that he wasn’t complaining about it.
When I started making my own zucchini soup, I realized how easy and quick this recipe is! No really, you need like 15 minutes to make it!

Since it is summer, and we are literally surrounded by all the different kinds of zucchini squashes, then it is the perfect time to make this recipe. You can make it with regular summer zucchini, or if you prefer patty pan zucchini then be my guest. I tried both, and it is so flavorful that I couldn’t imagine.
Try it! Literally, all you need is 3 ingredients, and I promise that your whole family will love it.
Yields 2 servings
Quick and delicious zucchini soup that calls for only 3 ingredients, and is done in no-time
5 minPrep Time
10 minCook Time
15 minTotal Time
- 1-2 small summer zucchini squashes
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups milk*
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch or tapioca starch
- Black pepper (optional)
- Fresh or dried dill for garnish (optional)
- Grate zucchini squashes on a fine grater.
- Heat olive oil in a medium pot, and add grated zucchini to fry.
- Season with salt at this stage to help zucchini release as much liquid as possible. Try not to overdo with the salt, 'cause you can always add more at the end.
- Fry until all the liquid is gone, and zucchinis start to stick to the walls of the pot.
- At this stage, you add the milk, but NOT ALL. Save some to dissolve starch.
- Dissolve starch in the leftover milk.
- When soup starts to boil, add dissolved starch and stir until soup thickens.
- Season with black pepper and more salt if necessary, and garnish with dill.
*If you want to make this dairy free or vegan version, you can use any milk substitute that you like the most. I tried almond milk and rice milk, and both did a great job.
