  • 2 chopped green onions
  • 1 Cup lowfat low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 Cups shredded zucchini
  • 1 Tablespoon minced fresh parsley

  • 1 Cup skimmed milk
  • 3 Tablespoons unbleached or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, cook onions in 3 tablespoons chicken broth until tender. Add remaining broth, zucchini, parsley, and thyme; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 to 40 minutes until zucchini is very tender. Uncover; slowly add buttermilk and 1/2 cup skimmed milk to vegetables.
  2. In a small jar, combine remaining 1/2 cup milk and flour; shake until flour is dissolved. Slowly add to soup, stirring frequently until it begins to thicken. (Do not bring to a boil.) Add salt and pepper. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cheese over individual servings as served.
