Zucchini and Sweet Potato Soup

Hello, new soup idea! Who knew combining zucchini and sweet potato would turn into an amazing Zucchini and Sweet Potato Soup!

Creamy Zucchini and Sweet Potato Soup

I got the idea for this soup after traveling to Cancun, Mexico for spring break with the family. The chef would only share the ingredients, no measurements, so I was left to strike the right balance between all the ingredients.

If you are a soup connoisseur and have never tried this soup recipe, you may just question why you waited so long!

Chopping the zucchini and onions

This Creamy Zucchini and Sweet Potato Soup is a very tasty soup that will definitely catch your taste buds off guard. The surprising combination of leek and onion along with zucchini squash and sweet potato is pretty unique.

Quick Tip: Be sure to cook your veggies down so they are soft enough to blend until smooth.

The Le Delice De Bourgogne Cheese is the secret ingredient to giving this dish that slightly Parmesan cheese taste that brings the richness of the flavors together very well. After adding chicken broth, it’s transformed into one of the best soups I’ve ever tasted.

  1. Thank you for this lovely recipe! I modified some of the specifics because I had yellow squash and mozzarella to use up. I made a quick mozzarella roux and it worked out wonderfully. I really liked how the flavors of the vegetables could shine through, but the soup is still hearty and warm.
