Zucchini Avocado soup

This is really delicious and light tasting, yet filling. Leave out the avocado, if you haven't reached that stage on intro yet.


1 Tbs. ghee
1 large onion, chopped
2 zucchini, diced
2 carrots, diced
4 cups chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 avocado, diced
Juice of 1/2 lemon


Sautee the onion and carrot in the ghee over medium heat until softened. Add zucchini and stir to coat with ghee. Add broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer until zucchini is cooked through. Remove from heat.

Just before serving, add garlic, avocado and lemon juice.

Do not reheat with avocado in the soup. It must be added just before eating.

  1. This is a very nice soup! We made it tonight and subbed yellow pepper for the carrot. Beef broth instead of chicken. We added some sour kraut in at the table, so it was quite the healthy soup, and pleasing too! Thanks for all these wonderful recipes. I come to this blog when I need to menu plan. :)
