We have a ton of zucchini from the garden this year and this was a deliciously new way to use it. I used Yukon gold potatoes because I didn't have new potatoes and I also used more bacon (because more bacon is always a good idea). An immersion blender worked well for this- much less of a hassle than blending in batches. The soup was very savory and satisfying! One pot made about 5 bowls and I calculated it to be about 150 calories per bowl! We had this with some grilled cheese+chicken sandwiches. I will definitely make it again!
