Make-Ahead Zucchini and Quinoa Dill Bisque

Containing nothing more than zucchini, quinoa, onions, dill and chicken stock, this is a soup that's both light and filling. [Photograph: Suzanne Lehrer]

This feather-light dairy-free "bisque" relies on quinoa for richness and density—no cream or milk required. Zucchini and dill shine with nothing but onions for sweetness and chicken broth for some full-bodied flavor. For an entirely vegan version, you can easily omit the chicken stock in favor of vegetable stock, water, or a combination of both. (Just be careful with store-bought vegetable stock; sometimes its dark color will leave you with a muddy-hued soup.)
