Bulbasaur Zucchini Soup

♫ Listening to: Homecoming by Twistboy ♫

I made this soup like 2 months ago, at the start of summer and never posted it. It’s partially because I’m a bad blogger, but also because I honestly don’t think my version of bulbasaur does him/her cuteness justice. But my parents are having an abundance of zucchini in their garden (oh, what a problem to have, am I right?), and if there’s one thing I’m not bad at, it’s solving zucchini problems. So I promised to publish this for them TONIGHT. Maybe, this will even help someone else in a similar zucchini predicament. A zucchiniament. A predicchini. Oh, and it gives you an excuse to use that {% affiliate instantpot %}} you bought that’s taking up valuable space in your kitchen.

This recipe makes 4 bowls of soup.

Bulbasaur Zucchini Soup Ingredients

Dollhouse Shortcut

If you aren't into cooking, use packaged zucchini soup, and just decorate that. Or if you like cooking, but you aren't into Pokémon, skip the decorating and just serve the soup plain.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (if you avoid oil, use water instead)
  • 2 yellow onions, diced finely
  • 5 pounds zucchini (~1 standard-sized produce bag full)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (if using an {% affiliate instantpot %}}, reduce liquid by half a cup)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Bulbasaur Zucchini Soup Directions

Sauté the diced onion in olive oil, stirring frequently over low-medium heat until translucent. If using an instant pot for this soup recipe, use the sauté button for this step.

Chop the washed zucchini (all except for 2 reserved for facial features if you’re making bulbasaur faces on the bowls of soup). Compost or throw away the end pieces.

Add the zucchini to the onions and continue to sauté.

Add 2 cups of veggie broth to zucchini.

Press the soup button on the instant pot after locking the lid and sealing the vent (if your instant pot has that mode), and turn off the keep warm feature. If you’re using a large pot on the stove, use high heat until it starts to boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes on the stove or until the zucchini are cooked.

Cut your facial features while you wait (see next set of directions).

Remove from heat.

Blend the sautéed ingredients with an immersion blender (or you can use a stand blender if you don’t have one).

Ladle into 4 bowls.

Serve or continue with the following set of directions to decorate.

Bulbasaur Facial Feature Ingredients

  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 watermelon radish
  • 1 beet

Bulbasaur Facial Feature Directions

Cut both zucchinis lengthwise to create 8 ears, 8 eyes, 8 pupils, and 8 teeth (4 from each squash).

Slice pieces of the outsides of the zucchini for the dark spots on the forehead.

Slice the beet into 8 slices for the red eyes.

Cut 4 mouths from the watermelon radish.
