Summer Soup or Zucchini Bruschetta

Disclaimer: this is not a fancy how-to make it food post. I’ll list the stuff, you figure out how to put it together.

This recipe is light, quick  and easy for the summer time.

Zucchini Bruschetta was the original recipe.

1/2 cup chopped zucchini; 1 Tbsp olive oil; 2 Tbsp fresh basil; 1 clove garlic; 1 cup diced tomatoes; 1 round sandwich skinny bread thingy (if not counting calories whatever bread you like; salt, pepper to taste; a sprinkle of Parmesan and a few fingers full of Mozzarella cheese.

Saute first 4 ingredients until tender crisp, add tomatoes, heat a little (don’t let the tomatoes get mushy). Spread on toasted bread, top with cheeses and broil until cheese melts.   This makes enough for maybe two of those sandwich skinny bread things.

So I started with Zucchini Bruschetta as a basis for soup.

Summer Soup  —  To make soup, I started with the zucchini and added chopped onion, cubed eggplant, and big juicy tomatoes. Letting it cook a little longer brings out the tomato juice and no other liquid is needed.  I use salt, pepper, dried basil, a garlic salt blend and Italian seasoning.

I’ve thought about adding bacon, celery, mushrooms, rice or pasta.  I guess this is just a basic soup, and what gets found in the refrig makes it way to the pot.

It is okay to make this soup in the winter.

  1. I love bruschetta, but have never added zucchini to the mix. I love your idea!

    I looked around your blog this afternoon, and it looks like you’re off to a great start! You mentioned that you were new to writing when you visited over at my place. I’ve been writing since I was a kid, and was a news reporter for many years, before I began the blogging journey a few years ago. I now teach writing at a Christian college in the area. I always tell my students that the best route to becoming a better writer is to read great writing, and to just continue to put the pen to paper — or the fingers to the keys. Even after all these years, I’m ever-learning what it means to write.

    God bless you on your writing journey, and thank you for your recent visit to Getting Down With Jesus. 🙂

    • Thank you for the encouragement. I subscribed to GDWJ, so I ‘m reading great writing.
