Spiralized Zucchini Vegetable Noodle Soup

Spiralized zucchini and sweet potatoes take the place of pasta in this cozy, nourishing Spiralized Zucchini Vegetable Noodle Soup.

Spiralized Zucchini Vegetable Noodle Soup

I always talk about how much I love soup, and now that it’s winter (in Chicago! Ack!), I’m more obsessed than ever. I love making it, I love eating it, I love freezing it… and I love reheating it just to enjoy eating it all over again. There’s never a day that I’m not in the mood for soup – it just makes my body and soul feel so nourished and happy. This blog could have been titled: Love and Lemons and Soup because I first fell in love with cooking by routinely making soup on Sundays.

This was an especially fun soup to make because how pretty are these veggie noodles?! Usually I put pasta in my minestrone, but this time I used spiralized zucchini and sweet potato noodles that I made using the KitchenAid® Spiralizer Attachment. I might never make soup with regular noodles again.

Sharp-eyed readers may notice that we’ve replaced our blue KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer with a shiny new lemony yellow (Majestic Yellow, to be exact) one. We loved the old one, but with all the blue in the new kitchen, now seemed like as good a time as any for a change. Plus, I’ll never say no to lemon-colored anything 🙂

I love this new Spiralizer attachment, and here’s why:

  1. It’s easy to clean(!) because only two small pieces of it actually touch the vegetable
  2. It’s simple to use – once you get the hang of putting the attachment on, you just start the mixer and voila! We have spiralized zucchini noodles and spiralized sweet potato noodles for this no-noodle vegetable noodle soup.
  3. It’s fast. Once I load a vegetable in and start, the whole thing is spiralized in seconds.

I know what you’re thinking – “that’s one long noodle, I bet you made a mess of yourself trying to eat it.” Well I trimmed it into smaller more bite-sized pieces before adding to the soup, I just thought that the one noodle was super fun.

The rest of the soup is pretty simple but so delicious – carrots, tomatoes, broth, canned or cooked white beans, chickpeas… and it’s flavored with generous amounts of rosemary and fresh thyme. Don’t forget to tie up your thyme so you can dig it out easily before you eat it! (Alternatively, you can pull the leaves off the thyme sprigs, but I like to save time and bundle it.

    Soup looks delicious, but I’m wondering what the nutritional info on it might be? Calories in particular. Thanks

    I’m ashamed to say that I’ve never had zucchini and sweet potato noodle minestrone! This recipe looks great though so hopefully that will change! Thanks for posting it, Jeanine!

    I had a similar zucchini and sweet potato noodle minestrone at a restaurant recently and found myself craving it and wondering if I could recreate it today. Thanks for the recipe, Jeanine!
