1. Cut ends from zucchini. Shred on a grater.
2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add onion and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add zucchini and thyme, raise heat to medium, and add chicken stock and rice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer covered 20 minutes.
3. Puree soup in a blender or food processor, in batches if necessary. Season with salt and pepper. Pass a bowl of grated Parmesan cheese on the side.
