Vegan Zucchini Soup Recipe

serves 4

This is the first recipe I ever put on Veggieful... Jerome has taken the most beautiful photograph as shown above. The photo really captures the comforting feeling of this dish as there is noting better than a warm soup on a cool or wintery night that can be made in about 30 minutes. This is actually a family recipe. My mum would make it all the time when I was younger and I absolutely loved it. The curry flavour, zucchini and coconut milk really work well together. If you want to go that one step further, you should definitely make my quick and easy garlic croutons. It adds a nice crunch to the dish.  Jerome and I normally make this at home when we have an overload of zucchinis, or we just feel like a quick and easy wintery meal :)

   1 tablespoon of olive oil
   1 brown onion, diced
   2 garlic cloves, crushed
   1/2 tablespoon of curry powder (to taste)
   1/2 tablespoon of vegan red curry paste (to taste)
   1 kg of zucchini (courgette), chopped into chunks
   4 cups veggie stock
   salt and pepper
   Croutons to garnish (optional)
   coconut milk to garnish (optional)
   coriander to garnish (optional)

  1. In large pot sauté oil, garlic, onion, curry powder and red curry paste.
  2. Add chopped zucchinis.
  3.  Pour in enough veggie stock to JUST cover the chopped zucchinis.
  4. Simmer for about 25 minutes or until zucchinis are very soft.
  5. Blend in portions using a processor/blender or with a handheld stick blender.
  6. Serve in a bowl with salt and pepper, coconut milk drizzled on the top and chopped coriander.
  • You should have enough vegetable stock to just cover the zucchinis in your soup pot.
  • Add more or less red curry paste to your taste as each curry paste differs in intensity.
  • The garlic croutons add a really nice crunch to the dish.
  • This soup freezes well!


  1. Oh wow I love zucchini! This soup sounds perfect!
    Can't wait to try it! Unfortunately, on my side of the world we are having 35C+ weather so it will have to wait a while...

    I love your blog!

    1. Thanks so much. It is really delicious. So nice in winter.

      Wow! That is so hot for you. It is only about 19 degrees celcius here at the moment.

      Thanks for your comment. I am checking your blog out now :)

  2. What a beautiful looking (and sounding) dish. I have copied this, for when we have a glut of garden zucchinis ourself. I'm always trying to find creative ways to use green vegies as my 7 year old is not keen on them (other than Brussel sprouts, broccoli or edemame!). Thank you for sharing this with us.

    1. My pleasure, your comment made me so happy! That is why Veggieful is here... to help with quick, healthy and delicious vegan dishes. I absolutely love this dish. I stole the recipe from my mum haha. Thanks for your comment :)
