WW - Zucchini soup

While I was cooking, I had a stalker - she kept moving though, so the photo is a bit blurry :)

Since one of my resolution is to eat healthy and try to lose those last 10 pounds, I tried a new recipe from Gina's.

Cream of Zucchini Soup

Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 4 • Size: 1 cup • Old Points: 1 pt • Points+: 2 pt
Calories: 65.3 • Fat: 1.0g • Protein: 3.5 g • Carb: 11 g • Fiber: 2.8 g

• 1/2 small onion, quartered
• 2 cloves garlic
• 3 small zucchini skin on cut in large chunks
• 32 oz fat free chicken stock
• 2 tbsp reduced fat sour cream
• salt
• pepper

Combine chicken broth, onion, garlic and zucchini in a medium pot and cook on medium heat.

Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Purée: Add the sour cream. Using an immersion blender, purée till smooth.

Stir in remaining ingredients, and adjust seasonings to taste. Serve hot.

Optional: Top with 2 tsp parmesan cheese - 1 point extra

I didn't use the sour cream - and took out some of the bouillon so it would be thicker. Will try it with the sour cream next time or the parmesan cheese!

LOVE that you share so many recipes! They always look so delicous! It is a shame I HATE to cook (it is my future husband I feel sorry for... ha!) otherwise I would be trying these right now! Love the first picture! So cute...

What a pretty puss! I'm not a big zucchini fan, but that soup does look good!

the only soup we've managed to get interested in lately is turkey chili - little to no fat and taste yummy. I am admiring your food photography lately and think you have really gotten it down to an art. These pictures could sell anyone on the soup - but then I also like zucchini --- but well photographed.

I'd have to have that sour cream in there, I'm not terribly fond of zucchini. Looks yum though. :)
