I followed the recipe exactly and I really enjoyed this soup. The texture was nice and creamy. I do agree the pepper flavor was pretty strong and would consider cutting down on it next time. The herb bread made the soup extra special, although it would be great with plain bread if I was short on time or didn't have the necessary herbs on hand. This recipe will be added to my rotation.

This is a really good soup. Can't believe how creamy the zucchini was after pureeing. Added 1 t of curry powder to add more depth of flavor, but overall very good base recipe and we will definitely be making again.

Good soup but don't know if I would rave about it. I did everything exactly as written and found it to be a little bland. This could be because I made it in January when zucchini is out of season, however the squashes flavor was good when tasted while preping. A little extra salt and splash of fresh lemon juice helped to bring out the flavor a little bit.

This soup is the only way I can get my husband to eat zucchini. I simply love this soup! I skip the fat all together and just use a non-stick pot instead.

Awesome soup! Make it all the time since its easy, healthy and delicious. The first time I made it, it was WAY too peppery, so since then I've cut it in half, and added more to taste at the end. Also, peeling the zucchini and using white pepper makes for a beautiful presentation.

Like other raters, I found the soup itself to be a little on the bland side, and too peppery. Would add a dash of cream or sour cream, or perhaps lemon juice to play up the flavor a little. The croutons, on the other hand, were to die for, especially the fresh tarragon! Don't skip that bit.

Very good. Added a few leftover mushrooms and some asparagus. And as one reviewer mentioned some lemon juice. Did not serve with the bread and herbs, filling on its own for lunch. My husband needed a bit more so a dollop of sour cream for his.
