I was a little skeptical about making soup without sauteeing onion and other vegetables first, but just throwing chopped zucchini into broth made a quick nourishing soup. I used a mixture of dried dill and tarragon. Adding some fresh herbs just before pureeing would be better, I think. Once I adjusted the seasoning, this was quite good. I used a little sharp cheddar, then added chopped green onion and a small dollop of light sour cream to my bowl.
