Friday's Favorites ~ Roasted Zucchini Soup

This is a recipe from a local Birmingham favorite... The Silvertron Cafe.

This time of year their roasted Zucchini Soup is just what I am wanting. Through the power of the internet, you can find just about anything you are looking for.
Roasted Zucchini Soup
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sliced yellow onions
2 pounds zucchini, trimmed and sliced
salt and pepper to taste
3-1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons curry powder
Chopped cilantro for garnish
Toasted or fried tortilla chips for garnish
Slice onions and zucchini and toss with oil. Lay vegetables in one layer on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake at 400° degrees until golden brown. Once cooked, puree the roasted vegetables and add to chicken stock or vegetable stock (if vegetarian). Place everything in a pot on medium heat. Add cream and curry; once it starts to boil, lower heat to medium-low and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes. Check seasonings. I changed the recipe up a bit and took away the heavy cream. I cut back the broth to 3 cups and the puree'd veggies made it plenty thick.

I'm not big on zucchini, so I'll have to take your word for it. My Friday favorite will be up late today since I have houseguests and it was either clean the house or get my post up!

Roasting the veggies would definitely make a flavour difference. I imagine it would be more intense.

Love the fact that you roasted this zucchini before you pureed it - adds so much more flavor!
