Healthy Eating: Cream of Zucchini Soup

5 cups chicken broth

1 1/2 pounds zucchini squash, cubed

Nutmeg and salt, to taste

In a 2-quart saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil. Add zucchini cubes to the broth and simmer for 15 minutes. While the zucchini simmers, heat the oil in a large frying pan and saute carrots and onions in until they are soft. Combine the zucchini in broth with the sauteed vegetables, stir in the cream cheese and season to taste. In a blender, blend in small batches until smooth. Makes 6 cups.
