When I found this bright yellow zucchini in the bio store I did not know what to make with it, but I just knew I had to bring it home to cook with it. I thought about making a zucchini salad or some zucchini fritters, but I choose to make a simple soup instead. And I am glad I did. The soup of the yellow zucchini does not only look bright I also liked the flavour, I even prefer the yellow zucchini above a normal green zucchini.
Yellow zucchini is a bit sweeter in comparison with its green brother. It can be cooked the same way as a green zucchini and is just as healthy. So when you are thinking about making a healthy lunch, try this recipe. With about 200 grams of zucchini per bowl, you know you got a healthy portion of soup. I topped this yellow zucchini soup with some crumbled feta. I know feta and green zucchini go well together and the feta is also very good with some yellow zucchini.
So next time you see a yellow zucchini, take it home and make some soup that is bursting with flavour and goodness.
