cream of zucchini soup with onion and cilantro

For anyone who wants a clean creamy soup which is also a detoxifying powerhouse with the addition of cilantro, or just wants a keto-soup that leaves you feeling full for hours, this one is a sure thing.

Adding the cilantro is a tasty benefit as it removes heavy metals and inflammation from your body. The onion gives it a full body taste with the heavy whipping cream giving the right amount of fat to keep you full. I have recently been making this soup with cashews instead of HWC, so please find that alternate option below if you’d like to stay dairy-free.

I’m not sure why this soup doesn’t end up tasting like zucchinis… But does anyone mind?

You Will Need:

* Two Medium / Large Zucchinis (see below **)

* Heavy Whipping Cream (or raw cashews – you will use one handful per serving)

* Imagine Free Range Chicken Broth (look at the ingredients of this brand and type of broth; it’s the only clean broth I have found with organic ingredients and no cane sugar or other unnecessary additives)

** This soup will feed three people a ladle and a half full so, use those measurements to make sure depending on how many people you’re feeding, you’ve gotten enough zucchinis and broth. **

* Himalayan Pink Salt

* Dry Cilantro Seasoning

* One Yellow Onion

In a pot or the Philips Soup Maker, cut up your zucchinis and just under a half of your onion. Drop in all but a quarter of your chicken broth (or more depending on how many people you are serving – see above note) and add a couple glugs of your heavy whipping cream (or two handfuls of raw cashews). Add some pinches of salt and a heavy helping of cilantro. You can always add more salt later to taste. The amount of cilantro I add is around two or more tablespoons. It may sound like a lot but, the soup needs the flavor; zucchinis are not known to be a very overbearing vegetable in itself.

Boil and then blend.

If you have the soup maker throw everything in and press the first button.

When the soup is done it will have the most gorgeous green color and be very creamy (if it’s not as creamy as you like, simply add more cream and serve).

Additional option: add parmesan to finish.

It needs nothing else.

    1. It is absolutely our favorite soup I’ve ever made! I can’t describe the taste… Maybe you can? It’s not zucchini. It’s fabulous. But I can’t say what it is… ???
