Lemon and Courgette Soup

Here’s a recipe to help cope with a super-abundance of courgettes. There are only a few ingredients, so preparation is quick. Even so, the flavour produced is light and fresh and this soup is delicious hot or cold.

Ingredients Method
2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large saucepan.
  2. Sauté the onion, courgette, and garlic on a medium heat for 10 minutes, avoiding browning.
  3. Add the stock and seasoning. Bring to the boil then turn down the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat. Blitz until smooth using a hand-held or worktop blender.
  5. Stir in the lemon zest and juice.
25g butter
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 onion, chopped
900g courgettes, chopped
800ml vegetable stock
Salt and ground black pepper
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
