  • Baking sheets
  • Blender
  • Dutch oven


  • 2 large zucchini (Or 6 small zucchinis)
  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 8 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 4 Tbsp. of olive oil
  • 32 oz. of chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1/2-1 cup of heavy cream If you want it a little less creamy use a 1/2 cup. A little more, use the whole cup
  • 2 Tbsp. of garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. of ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste. Use at least 3 tsp. of salt and be generous with the pepper. It will taste better! Add one tsp. at a time and mix it in, if you're nervous.


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Slice your zucchinis and onions and add them to a baking sheet along with the garlic cloves.
  • Add the olive oil to coat both sides and add salt and pepper on both sides too.
  • Add them to the oven for 25 minutes. Work in batches if you have to. I made this in two batches.
  • Once the batches are done, add them to the blender with the chicken broth.
  • Blend for a few minutes each on the liquify setting. I blended for about 4 minutes.
  • Add the zucchini soup to a Dutch oven on a low flame.
  • Add in your heavy cream and blend together. Bring to a boil once the cream is well blended.
  • Add in your other seasonings and let the soup simmer for at least 15 minutes to heat through and allow all the flavors to come together.
  • As noted above in the ingredients, make sure to be generous with the salt and pepper. Just do it slowly.
  • Top with your selected toppings and enjoy!
