  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onions and sauté until lightly brown and soft, about 5 minutes. Add splashes of water as needed to deglaze the pan.
  3. Add the garlic and bouillon cubes and stir until the cubes have dissolved and the garlic is fragrant, about 1 - 2 minutes.
  4. Add the zucchini, bell peppers, coriander, and sun-dried paprika to the pot, and sauté for 4 - 5 minutes.
  5. Add the water, and bring everything to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and partially cover the pot with a lid. Allow to cook for 10 - 15 minutes.
  6. Add the coconut milk and cook for another 3 minutes, before blending the soup with an immersion blender or standing blender until creamy.
  7. Serve, garnish, and enjoy!

Can I substitute red bell peppers with green bell peppers? I only have green bell peppers on hand, but I read that red bell peppers give a sweeter flavor than green. I also don't want to make a trip to the store just for red bell peppers.

Hi Julia! You can make the soup with green peppers. Green peppers would impact the colour of the soup and they do have a more bitter taste which may impact the flavour. You could adjust the spices and add less green pepper if you're open to experimenting a bit though 🙂

One of my favourite recipes! It's fast, freezes well and tastes so delicious. A staple in our house :)
