Robert and I love enjoying a warm bowl of soup alongside a delicious sandwich for a casual Sunday supper. I particularly love this Zucchini Soup because it is actually healthy (low in fat and carbs), a snap to put together – and, best of all, scrumptious! We enjoy it together with a Turkey, Chutney and Cheese Panini. Both recipes are below – enjoy!
