2 poundszucchini (about 5 small to medium, sliced 1/4 inch thick)
4 cupsreduced-sodium or homemade vegetable broth

Puree the soup in batches in a blender. Pour the soup through a strainer into a bowl, using a spoon to push any solid bits through. Add 2 tablespoons of the yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon of the chili powder. Season with salt to taste.
Divide soup among bowls and garnish each with some yogurt, a sprinkle of chili powder, and a few basil leaves.
