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 of all your local fruit and vegetables, including zucchini.
This is really an all-round soup that practically begs you to vary the ingredients as you choose.

6 carrots, sliced
1 onion, chopped

7. Reheat gently until serving temperature.
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.

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.

Serve it hot or cold to your taste. Freeze the leftovers, too, but you may want to add extra curry seasoning when you reheat it. Seasonings tend to lose their punch when frozen.
