I actually didn’t cook my soup in the crockpot. I just put all the ingredients into a pot and simmered it for about an hour. Then I pureed it with a hand blender and boy was it delicious! Thanks Vicki, for entering the Crockpot Contest! Hope you enter the new ground turkey contest!!
VICKI’S ZUCCHINI-BASIL SOUP
2 pounds zucchini, trimmed and cut
1/2 pound lean shoulder bacon
3/4 cup chopped onion (red or white)
1 tsp red crushed pepper
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp white pepper
1 t olive oil
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
1/3 cup packed basil leaves
I garnished my leftover soup with a little chopped fresh jalapeno, a tablespoon of nonfat sour cream and a tablespoon of 2% cheddar cheese. It was phenomenal!!
