Ingredients to make the best Vegan Zucchini Soup
Zucchini – Fresh Zucchini with skin works well for this recipe
Potato – Makes the soup creamy and adds a great taste as well.
Onion & Garlic – Adds a great aroma and flavour to the Soup
Vegetable Stock – I prefer using vegetable stock because it adds a lot of flavour. If you don’t have vegetable broth, you can replace it with water.
Salt, Pepper Powder – Seasonings to add taste to the Soup
Coconut Milk – I love adding coconut milk to my soup recipes. Gives a creamy texture and taste to the soup.
Oil or Butter – Ingredients can be sauteed in butter or olive oil.
How to make Instant Pot Zucchini Soup
Turn on the Saute Mode in your Instant Pot. Add oil to the inner pot. Once hot, add onion and garlic. Saute for a couple of minutes.
Add cubed zucchini, peeled and chopped potato, salt and vegetable broth.
Close the lid, and pressure cook for 10 minutes. Allow the pressure to release for five minutes naturally, then manually release the remaining pressure. Puree the soup using an immersion blender or by transferring the mixture to a heavy blender.
Add coconut milk, pepper powder and add salt if needed.
Serve this best zucchini soup hot, with a drizzle of cream or garnish with finely chopped parsley if you’d like.
Variations while making this Creamy Zucchini Soup
I like adding potato because it gives a creamy texture to the Soup. If you want to keep the soup light, you can omit the potato.
Heavy cream can replace coconut milk. You can also use almond milk or half-and-half.
There are also other ingredients you can use, such as broccoli, carrots, celery, thyme, and basil.
