This is a great way to use up the summer courgette glut, and then freeze to save for the cooler months ahead. You don’t need t add the milk or cream, but it does add a delicious creamy finish to the soup. I also like to crack some black pepper over the top just before serving.
Ingredients for Courgette Soup:
- 1 medium sized courgette
- 1 small onion
- 1 medium potato
- herbs of your choice, I use thyme or sage and bay
- chicken stock or cube
- milk or cream
Method for Courgette Soup:
- Peel the onion, chop all the veg and put them in a pan and just cover with the stock, add the herbs.
- Put on the lid and cook until tender.
- Liquidise in a blender.
- Add milk or cream to thin the soup to the consistency that you prefer.
- Season to taste.
If you are going to freeze this soup I find it best to freeze after stage 3, then add the cream etc after it has been thawed.
