On our last trip to NYC we were given a tinny free sample of a delicious soup that my husband liked it so much he asked for the ingredients. When we came back home, he insisted I should try to reproduce it and this is the result: a creamy delicious zucchini, cashew and thyme soup. My version of that little sip in Bryant Park.
Zucchini, cashew, thyme soup! With just four ingredients it couldn’t be any easier. It is quite impressive how the cashews give a silky flavor just as if it was regular cream. And the thyme makes this soup so so interesting! Make sure to add all the thyme (or more if you like!) the recipe calls for, otherwise you will miss the star flavor of the soup.
I recommend not adding all the boiling water when blending the soup. Save some on the side and add it if needed. The zucchini absorbs a lot of water when cooked and you can end up with a very liquid soup.
