NOTES : 1) used a can of veg. broth instead of ice - worked well
2) garnish with sour cream and chives or something else, crushed red pepper or chili powder
3) other suggestions include adding sauteed onion, a couple of cold shrimp, or cucumber
4) microwave the zucchini for easier prep

All in all, a versatile palette that would work with many variations.

Every good dish deserves a good pot.
