Healthy dinner recipe for the best summer soup

This is such an easy and delicious recipe for the creamiest soup made with potatoes and zucchini, and it’s just perfect for a sunny day. If you love potato soup but want to try a different style, this recipe with zucchini is just for you. Other than potatoes and zucchini we also add onion and garlic to give it a lot of flavor. We top it with crispy bacon and fresh parsley which really ties it all together. If you want an alternative to the bacon you could also fry some Serrano ham which will also turn crispy and savory, yet it’s less fatty than bacon.


Easy potato soup recipe with zucchini

It tastes wonderful to add a zucchini to your potato soup. Or actually, you can’t really taste a massive difference, but it makes the soup more filling as you get an extra vegetable and it changes the color to a beautiful light green. It looks gorgeous and remember; we also eat (or rather taste) with our eyes! 

This is a great and healthy dinner recipe you can make in just 30 minutes.


Can I freeze it? 

If you have leftovers you can most certainly freeze them. Just let your freshly made soup cool off a bit so you don’t put something piping hot into your freezer and waste a lot of energy (just don’t wait too long as we don’t want any nasty bacteria to form). 

It’s very easy to reheat in a pot on the stove - you can even take it straight out of the freezer and right into the pot to reheat.


Easy meal prep ideas for lunch and dinner

Soup is perfect for meal prepping! We love making a large batch of soup when we cook. You can keep it in the fridge for 3-4 days, or as mentioned above you can even freeze it in freezer-safe bags or containers when the soup has cooled down a bit. Simply scale up the ingredients in the recipe to match the portions of soup you want to make.


Simple family dinner / lunch ideas

This potato-zucchini soup is the perfect lunch or for dinner idea for the family thanks to its creamy texture and mild, delicious flavors. Plus it’s got bacon on top!
