    Extra zucchini should work. I don't think tomatoes would, though. You could try it and see.

    I made the soup and it is very delicious. It looks like green velvet too . Robert also liked it, and normally I cannot get him to eat many greens, especially zucchini

    I bet other greens would work in this as well.

    One would have to adjust cooking times and flavourings to compensate if thicker leaves being cooked, though.

    Great recipe. Thanks for the posting.
