Vitamix Zucchini Soup Recipe

Makes 9 cups

½ cup Greek yogurt
Grated zest of 1 lemon
3 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
3 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
2 ½ pounds zucchini, diced
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cups loosely packed spinach, washed and stemmed

Stir together yogurt, lemon zest, 1½ teaspoons each of basil and oregano in a small bowl. Set aside for garnish.

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for 4 minutes or until softened. Add zucchini, salt, pepper, and remaining 1 ½ teaspoons each basil and oregano. Cook until the zucchini starts to release its liquid, 10 to 12 minutes.

Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.

Ladle half of the hot mixture into the Vitamix container, add 1 cup of the spinach, and secure the lid. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and slowly increase the speed to Variable 10, then to High. Blend for 1 minute.

Pour the pureed soup into a clean pot. Repeat with the remaining soup. Mix together both batches to combine, reheating if necessary.

Serve hot with a dollop of the yogurt garnish.
