Cook, stirring often, until potatoes start to soften, about 8 minutes. Stir in zucchini.
  • Sprinkle flour over vegetables and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Stir in stock and let it come to a simmer before reducing heat to medium-low and adding So Nice Organic Almond Unsweetened.

Tip: try stirring in 1 tsp (5 ml) smoked paprika when adding the zucchini for a smoky flavour
