Zucchinis are so versatile and I use them in a lot of my low-histamine recipes. Soups are filled with nutrients, and easy to freeze so it’s a good option when you don’t know what to cook.
Low histamine zucchini soup
- 1 large diced green zucchini (about 2 cups)
- 1 small potato
- 1 shallot
- 1 small clove garlic
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
- 2 cups (500 ml) vegetable stock
- Coconut cream or milk (optional)
- Chives (optional)
Peel and dice the potato.
Chop the shallot, garlic and chives.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan, add the zucchini, potato, shallot and garlic and fry for 5 mins until softened.
Season with salt and add the vegetable stock. Bring to a boil.
Cover and let simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potato is tender.
Purée the soup with a blender until smooth.
Finish with 1 tablespoon of coconut cream and sprinkle with chopped chives (optional)
