Squash Blossom Soup

Squash Blossom Soup

This is a great "planned over" meal! Planned Over meals are those meals that the first meal is made knowing what will be done for the second meal with any remaining food. These meals can often be better than the first meal. The first meal here was Baked Chicken on Yellow Squash with Tomatillo Sauce (see recipes for sauce). This meal is wonderful on its own. And the second meal, well, Squash Blossom Soup. Enjoy!


  • 3 yellow squash, slicedĀ 
  • 1 serrano, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Squash Blossoms, 8, male
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Fresh Chives
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • leftover chicken, squash, tomatillo, chopped


  1. Saute Squash, Onion, Pepper, and Garlic in EVOO until squash wilted and onion is translucent in Soup Pan. 
  2. Add chopped leftovers and chicken stock and simmer, reducing the liquid by one-third. 
  3. Add fresh Thyme and Chives, Salt, White Pepper, and Butter. 
  4. As the soup simmers, tear male Squash Blossoms and add to the top of the soup until they melt.
  5. Serve with Rustic Bread and a Salad. Cheese can be melted into the soup as a variation.  Enjoy.
