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.

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.
