Creepy Crawly Worm Soup (Tomato Zucchini Soup)

Creep everyone out with this tasty soup that's full of worms---or caterpillars. Choose whichever will creep your diners out the most! LOL



  1. Add broth to large pot and stir in salsa.
  2. Heat to boiling.
  3. Add chopped zucchini and reduce heat so soup is at a simmer.
  4. Cook about 5 to 10 minutes (or longer if you wish) until zucchini is as soft as you like. Add “worms” the last few minutes of cooking. If your worms are frozen, you can add them at the same time that you add the chopped zucchini.


To make a more substantial meal, feel free to small amounts of additional veggies, meat (e.g., cubed cooked chicken or turkey), or seafood if you like, but don’t add so much that you overshadow the worms. The “worms” need to be easily seen. If you make zoodles often, save your “worms” in the freezer each time until you get enough to make Creepy Crawly Worm Soup for your family. You can easily double or triple the amounts in this recipe to feed a larger crowd. If you are serving this soup to individuals who don't care for spiciness at all, you can adjust the proportions of broth and salsa so that the salsa serves to simply add flavor versus much spiciness. Serve this soup with Paleo Bread or Vegan Sweet Potato Biscuits.
