Low Oxalate Recipe: Creamy Zucchini Soup

I wanted to share this recipe with you since the weather is turning cooler and soups are always perfect for a fall evening!

This creamy zucchini soup recipe is so easy and doesn’t take long to prepare.

Zucchini is low oxalate and is such a versatile ingredient.

I sauté zucchini for an easy side dish, make zoodles instead of noodles, bake zucchini bread, and use zucchini in vegetable or chicken soup.

It’s low in calories and fat, can be eaten raw or cooked, has a high water content and is low in oxalates.
