Zucchini + Rosemary Soup

I didn't have super high hopes for this soup, but I decided to give it a try because I'm tired of eating zucchini sautéed, fried, and grilled. When I gave Jason a spoonful to try, he, too, was impressed by its palate-pleasing qualities. The potatoes help give this soup a nice consistency without overwhelming the zucchini, and the rosemary is the perfect spice for this soup.

In addition to using our remaining zucchini, I also used the garlic, potatoes, and onion from our CSA, as well as chicken stock from my freezer! I felt sorta like a kitchen souperstar (don't judge me).
