Courgette Soup Recipe

Courgette SoupSubmitted by gypsy

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:

  1. Peel the onion, chop all the veg and put them in a pan and just cover with the stock, add the herbs.
  2. Put on the lid  and cook until tender.
  3. Liquidise in a blender.
  4. Add milk or cream to thin the soup to the consistency that you prefer.
  5. Season to taste.

If by chance the soup is too thin add some white bread and blitz it again in the blender.

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.
