Does it Matter What size Zucchini I use in Creamy Zucchini Soup?
It doesn’t really matter what size Zucchini you use in this recipe. I actually prefer to use medium size zucchini. But, I have made it with all sizes ranging from small to large (I have not used extra large zucchini). It has always turned out to be really good no matter whether the zucchini were small, medium or large.
The Best Ways to Use Small Zucchini:
Small zucchini are crisp and tender when young, and have a fresh, mild flavor, with a delicate texture and small seeds. Whether they are shaved into ribbons, cut into thin discs, or sliced into spears, small, delicate zucchini are really good when eaten raw in salads, served raw on a veggie tray with a dip, or even made into a dip.
The Best Ways to Use Large Zucchini:
Monster zucchini are totally impressive to look at, but they are not as flavorful as smaller zucchini. But that is not to say that you can’t eat these massive zucchini that grow in your garden or that you find at the farmers market. You can eat them.
Just stay away from making salads with them. They have large seeds and a higher water content, which makes for a pulpy texture. They benefit from longer cook times, like being stewed, roasted, and baked into delicious bread or pastries.
So now it is time to make up a batch of this delicious Creamy Zucchini Soup. Your family will thank you for it.

You really should try it. We don’t have it that often, but I’m not sure why, because it really is good. I think that it is not one of the regular soup flavors so we forget about it. Also, I think that usually when the zucchini are on, it is usually warmer and we are not in the mood for hot soup. Thank you for coming by and leaving a comment!
I never knew that smaller zucchini were higher in flavor than the large ones! Good to know! This soup looks perfect for Fall 🙂
The first time I heard of zucchini soup, I was a little hesitant, but it really is delicious!
