Katherine Hepburns Zucchini Soup 

A Perfect Way To Use Your Garden Bounty

Katherine Hepburns Zucchini Soup, seasoned with curry, this delicious soup is an excellent way to use up a plentiful harvest of zucchini from your garden. But zucchini often can be found for a good price so even if you purchase your squash from the local grocery store in the winter this a cost conscious recipe.

No garden? In the summer check out your local Farmer's Market for freshness and good quality.

Katherine Hepburns Zucchini Soup 


1 large or  4 to 6 small zucchini
6 carrots, sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 -2 celery stalks, chopped
3 -4 cups chicken broth
½ to 1/ ½ curry powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 – 3 Tablespoons butter (optional)


1. Wash and prepare all the vegetables.

2. Put in a large soup pot. Add just enough water to cover the chopped vegetables.

4. Add chicken broth. Cook till vegetables are soft. Cool slightly.

5. Process cooked vegetables in blender or food processor until pureed. (Be very careful if the vegetables are still quite hot!)

6. Return pureed vegetables to soup pot, add seasonings and adjust to taste.

7. Reheat gently until serving temperature.

Optional Version:

1. Steam or omit carrots and saute chopped vegetables in butter until soft.

2. Proceed to puree the softened vegetables in a blender or food processor with some of the chicken broth as above.

3. Return to pot and continue cooking, adding seasonings.

Makes 6 servings. Unless, of course, you are greedy.

Best Pennywise Tips:

Use the best quality freshest curry powder you can afford for best flavor.

We love the addition of carrots for the flavor, color and body they add to the soup.

This soup is delicious served with hot rolls, baking powder biscuits, or croutons.
