With just a few minutes of prep time, tons of tasty veggies, and savory, seared chicken, you can create a zucchini soup that’s as vibrant as it is delicious. As the soup comes to a simmer, Tim prepares ingredients for his next dish. Working ahead makes cooking fast and easy!

This is one of our favorite zucchini recipes. Fritters are a great way to use leftovers because they’re a blank canvas—you can add many different ingredients to make them unique. If you’re making a dill sauce, you can bring out the flavors by letting it sit in the fridge overnight.

Tim’s Veggie Prep Tips

  • Store low-moisture veggies, like leeks or onions, in water.
  • Store high-moisture veggies, like zucchini, on a paper towel.
