Chilled Zucchini Basil Soup (+ A Giveaway!)

By Editorial Team
1 Comments

Soup is one of the most overlooked ways for incorporating a rich variety of vegetables in your diet. That goes double for summer soups. We’re loving this keto- and Primal-friendly Zucchini Basil Soup that can be served either warm or chilled any day of the year. But the nutritional goodness isn’t just in the vegetables and herbs. It also serves up the richness of full-fat coconut milk (feel free to use whole milk or cream if you prefer regular dairy) and all the benefits of collagen protein with the help of Bonafide Organic Chicken Bone Broth. Enjoy—and be sure to check out our community giveaway with Bonafide Provisions below!

  1. I tried a zucchini and basil soup recipe from Serious Eats last year that was just so disappointing I ended up getting rid of it.

    I like the idea but was disheartened enough that I didn’t try to rework the recipe myself. Hope this version rocks.
