This easy summer zucchini soup could be my favorite soup EVER!  It’s light, silky, bright, and refreshing.  Not to mention, the soup comes together so quickly, you can have dinner ready and on the table in 30 minutes.  Serve with a warm, crusty baguette on the side and enjoy 😊

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

What (your ingredients):

1 tsp. coconut oil

½ onion, roughly chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

In a large Dutch oven or stockpot, heat coconut oil over medium heat.
